    Raging Railroads



    Not much Catholic news today, but this is kinda interesting re: who can you trust.

    Doesn't seem like you can trust the Railroad with your well being. Even when they are not de-railing.

    PHOENIX -- A 65-year-old St. Louis man is missing after Amtrak personnel, mistaking his diabetic shock for drunk and disorderly behavior, kicked him off a train in the middle of a national forest, according to police in Williams, Ariz.

    "He was let off in the middle of a national forest, which is about 800,000 acres of beautiful pine trees," Lt. Mike Graham said.


    Police said there is no train station or running water at the crossing, which is about two miles from the nearest road, at an elevation of about 8,000 feet.


    Amtrak personnel told police dispatchers that Sims was drunk and unruly. The Sims family said Sims is diabetic and was going into shock.


    Sims' brother, Brian Mason, said his family tried to call Sims on his cell phone that night, but Sims was incoherent.


    When officers arrived at the crossing, police said, Sims ran into the woods, leaving his luggage and medication behind.
