Job Security

Get a job writing environmental impact statements for the Obama administration. All you have to do is come into work each day and announce "We're still working on it."

Accidents happen:

A CSX train carrying tankers of crude oil derailed in downtown Lynchburg, Va., Wednesday afternoon, according to city officials, exploding into flames and spilling oil into the James River.

In a statement, CSX said that 15 cars had derailed as the train traveled from Chicago to Virginia. "An initial assessment that three of the cars were on fire," said the statement, "and we have been advised by fire officials that the fire has been extinguished."
This isn't a huge ecological catastrophe.

But it's worth noting that a pipeline has never gone off the tracks.
