    After reading the article on Blue Line casualties, I thought of a quote from a man who was not known for “mincing words”, the late George Carlin:  “This item demonstrates how stupid the average American is.  Every ninety minutes someone in this country is hit by a train.  A train, okay?  Trains are on tracks; they can’t come and get you.  They can’t
     surprise you when you step off a curb.  You have to go to them.  Got that?”
