Says oil transport safer by railroad


I believe the letter to the editor bashing Warren Buffet is just wrong. He takes a small salary, not millions like some bankers. As for profit, he gives stock to many organizations for the help of people in this and other countries. Oil by rail is much safer than by truck. If people would stop and think, they would understand that pipelines and rail are much safer the trucks. We are not going to stop oil transportation as long as we are oil dependent. Let's do it as safely as possible and not bash people you have no idea what they make or do with their money.
