The Long Island Rail Road had to suspend service again during the thunderstorm that hit us last week.
What was different about this suspension?
We can't get answers just yet because, well uh, the brain trust at the Railroad hasn't had enough time to come up with a good story.
The LIRR says it needs time to figure out what went wrong with their $56M new system THAT WE THE RIDERS PAID FOR.
Well here’s a clue – YOU DO NOT PUT THE ELECTRONIC BRAINS OF YOUR RAILROAD INSIDE A METAL HUT AND EXPECT LIGHTNING NOT TO HIT IT!
For years those of us on
Long Island have been complaining about how inept the LIRR management is but we were wrong. We never realized the full extent of management’s stupidity.
After our rail system has been knocked out by repeated lightning strikes through the years wouldn’t it be a simple thing to place key elements of any expensive and new one underground?
|LIRR - On the wrong track for years!|
Riders of the inept rail can now expect to pay more for improvements that will be necessitated by this latest round of poor planning.
are used to idiocy when it comes to planning of that kind. New York
Remember the moronic move by America’s Mayor Rudolpho Giuliani placing the bombed out NYC command center back in the WTC after that first attack? This was done even though the towers were known to be a target of terrorists the world over?
Who suggested the Mayor do so, his three advisors, Larry Curly & Moe?
We do not need a commission to find out what went wrong with the LIRR; all we need is a list of the people in charge.
