Let the midnight special … (I prefer the Little Richard interpretation, with the “woo-hoo” sounding out like a battle cry).

I have a compound comminuted question: How and where do we evacuate all those university students, if and when one of those oil trains derails on the Grade, catches the tunnel on fire and rolls a couple of rogue tankers knuckle over knuckle down into Cal Poly’s backyard and perhaps destroys a trestle; and how does that scenario improve the overall economy of San Luis Obispo County?

Time to wake up, Cal Poly, and smell the coffee ... or is that oil burning?
