In time for the holiday weekend, we are warned about threats to rail travel
. Quick question: Are there any procdures for screening luggage carried by railroad passengres? Full answer: No. A duffle bag packed with explosive, a suicide bomber, a tunnel under Grand Central Station in Manhattan, and a Memorial Weekend to remember. Or maybe, a couple of guys get on at one station, a couple of guys get on at the next, and so on until suddenly there are ten terrorists walking up the aisle to the engineer's compartment. We are not ready. But have a nice day.
