My heartiest congratulations to CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Drew Griffin. You two numbskulls have just been awarded Premier Level membership in the “I Know Absolutely Nothing About Railroads But I’ll Shoot My Big, Uneducated Mouth Off About Them Anyway” club. You guys, like Fox News, will twist words and facts (or make them up) and rely on some fairly inane talking heads just to create a story where there really is none. You join fellow passenger rail bashers and purveyors of refried cow pies like the Reason Foundation and the Cato Institute.
