    Angry People and trains just don't mix

    In our town, there are railroad tracks where the locals like to walk down the tracks to cut down their walk time from the store to home. After many deaths, the community forced the railroad to build a million dollar fence aound the track, so that people could not get to the tracks to get killed....Of course they didn't build a fence on the other side, behind all the stores, so now the locals go thru the side without the fence and walk FURTHER along the tracks until they get to the next road, where the fence ends.

    All the politicians crowed, saying they FORCED the big business to care about the locals, when all they did was make it more difficult to get off the tracks, which they should not be on in the first place.

    End result after over a year: The same number of deaths with the fence as without
