A one-two punch

Kudos to The Tribune for delivering one-two punches to the oil train and nuclear industries! (“Crude oil trains may cause track failure,” “Why nuclear power is shrinking in the U.S.,” Oct. 15.)

It is indeed frightening to read about the degradation of our national track system by the heavy, rolling bombs that we must often tolerate within our communities.

And of course, it’s old news that the sessile bombs of the nuclear industry have never paid their own way, feeding merely at the trough of political patronage. But, thank you, Trib, for your service to public safety!
