Pardon Me, Boy

Headline: Amtrak president Dunn fired
(their pun, not mine)
WASHINGTON-- Amtrak's board of directors on Wednesday fired President David Gunn, saying the debt-laden rail carrier needs "a leader with vision and experience."
As long as the engineers have vision, everything should be okay and stay on track. One would think David Gunn would've had the proper training in the first place considering who he worked for.

Besides, how else will mystery novelists survive without trains? The impact of Amtrak derailing would be heartbreaking, not to mention excruciatingly loud.

I welcome the Amtrak Board of Director's decision to fire David Gunn. What this agency needs now is a true reform minded person who is willing to make the hard decisions necessary to be competitive. It is time to end the Federal subsidy of Amtrak and the only way to get there is by reevaluating the entire system as it is now. Firing the keepers of the status quo is a good first step.

Although I'm one of the romantics you spoke of, I'm also one that doesn't like being robbed. Let's hope things will head in the right direction with a new leader.
