While we are pleased about Metrolink's interim decision to put a locomotive in front instead of the new cab car when trains are being pushed, we maintain our position that passenger trains should not be pushed at all.  

The locomotive will surely absorb much greater forces than would a cab car.  If the locomotive is in front, it ought to pull and not be pushed. Commuter trains should only be pulled, as they are less likely to derail in a collision, if there is a collision, will provide better protection to passengers. Metrolink correctly says: "you can't put a price on safety."  Pulling is always safer.  Pushing is solely to save money.

It is blatantly obvious that more could have been done to prevent the #Germanwings crash from occurring. Now, just months after the crash, medical experts are recommending the implementation of psychological testing of all airline pilots. It is also being suggested that two crew members be in the cockpit at all times during a flight. Along with this proposition, is a proposed international medical database that will hold records of medical history that will aid in the determination of whether or not the pilot is fit to fly an aircraft.

Ordinarily, it would be offensive for employers to "spy" on their employees while they work, and cameras in locomotive cabs certainly could be thought of as that. However, in this instance, as in aviation cockpits, the safety concerns outweigh the privacy rights, since it is often necessary to know what the crew did in order to understand what caused a crash. That knowledge may well help prevent future tragedies.

06/15/15, a date that is so important in the history of all free people that it should be celebrated by our press, our leaders and our citizenry. Yes, June 15, 1215, the date the Magna Carta was signed.  That document provides the foundation for the most basic rights enjoyed by us and all free people.  It is the original written source of those rights -- and today is its 800th anniversary.  

Among those rights, granted by the King for the first time, is the right to habeas corpus and the right to be secure in your person and property, neither of which can be taken without due process of law.  It was the first time women were recognized as having any rights at all, albeit originally only for noblewomen; and, primarily it granted only limited rights with respect to marriage – but it was a start that led to greater rights for all women.   

Imagine, the King John giving up supreme power, and declaring that not even he was above the law!  I suppose that is why he called it “this awful thing.”
