wish, hope, life

Daaaamn,

CNN.com - Train search for survivors, clues

I saw this on TV while I was at the gym yesterday morning, and was stunned by the scope of the damage. And it kept getting worse as the day progressed - I think they're up to 71 dead, one day after the accident.

No one's quite sure what heppened, whether it derailed because of speeding or bad brakes or a stone on the tracks or what. They'd love to talk to the driver, but he's probably a smudge of red goo and unlikely to be very helpful.

Fortunately, no one I know was on the train, although my boyfriend works in that city and said he had to walk past the temporary morgue. Ugh.
