​I tried to respond to PSF just now about the Metro-North derailment and found that it posted not to her comment here but to Gawker, and I inadvertently saw Gawker comments am just ready to throw up. So I thought I'd make a response thread for us here in case anyone has a thought. Here is what I was going to say:

"I and many of my colleagues take this very train to work every day, and that is a horrible curve. Metro North is actually very safe overall, except for that curve and unless the driver passed out suddenly, it is criminal to go fast in that section, even though they know the danger. I am so sorry for these poor people who I am sure got up early to come in to the city for a fun Sunday :(
