Railroaded, an epilogue

Here's an amusing epilogue to "Railroaded" (

I had copied my letter to several local consumer reporters in the faint hope that one of them would take an interest in disability access on our commuter train system.

Today, I was chagrined to find a return letter in my p.o. box, which I clearly do not check as often as I should -- the letter was dated 2/16/06. "Swell," I thought, "I got some interest, and I didn't have the wit to check my mail box and follow up."

Alas, I needn't have worried. Here is the text of the response, in it's entirety, with no intentional edits on my part. It is from Michael Finney, from KGO TV, our local ABC affiliate.

Makes me wish the Magnificent Seven was "on my side." 'Cause this ain't them.
