Unhappy with railroad profits


Did not the newspaper just tell us that a few days ago that Warren Buffett is making $1 million a day profit? Well right from the Bloomberg Business week website it says how "Warren Buffett cashes in on railroad tank cars." The story said "Tank cars, those torpedo-shaped rail cars built to carry liquids, anything from milk to industrial chemicals, are increasingly being used to carry shale oil" and "The traffic has grown significantly, from probably 50,000 carloads a year in 2010 to over 700,000 this year." In today's paper your article says that there excuse for fixing the cars and tracks is money. One billion dollars is what your paper said. Who is fooling who? Have him take a pay cut and save some lives, please.
