A Distraction

An Amtrak train headed to New York City crashed in Philadelphia late Tuesday, and more than 50 injuries were confirmed....  So far it seems there were no deaths. So there's that.

But of course the real tragedy here is that these guys, blood on their faces, in a turned over train car, are now temporarily not thinking about the plight of poor poor Michelle Obama, who is pretty sure nobody wanted her in a museum when she was a kid. And maybe even someone potentially mistook her for the help at some theoretical cocktail party. Well, it could have happened. And these guys are momentarily not feeling guilty about it. 

I'm sure once the dust settles we'll all go back to lamenting the plight of this woman who has a professional grape peeler on staff. This poor downtrodden soul who gets blamed for being an angry scold just because she scolds us angrily. 

I now see there were fatalities. Of course this is more important and more serious than any bogus grievance from the ridiculous first lady.

5 Dead, I think.

Yikes, I see that now. Maybe even six.

Wife said WaPo said the train had been traveling at 100 MPH--about twice the post speed limit.
