Some Thoughts on the Lake County Train Wreck

The squeaky wheel gets the oil.
The exploding Canadian National oil train failed to explode in Antioch on Friday:
A freight train car hauling nonhazardous material broke in two in an unincorporated area near Antioch in early Friday morning, authorities said.

One official trainspotter told your LakeCountyEye: "Yup, that car snapped like a two-dollar lawn chair. Another Canadian National train derailed last February in Canada. That one leaked more oil than a KFC dumpster. No fire:"
A Canadian National Railway train that derailed near Emo, Ontario, at about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday caused about 30 cars to leave the tracks and several to leak crude oil, confirmed CN officials this morning.

Note to Ops: Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.
