When trains are outlawed…

…only outlaws will have trains. There’s a whole political movement lurking in this somewhere:

A woman was talking to her boyfriend on a cell phone about committing suicide when she was hit by a train in Wyandotte and died this morning.

The 25-year-old Wyandotte woman, who was hit by the train on the railroad tracks east of 9th Street at Maple, left a suicide note at the scene, Wyandotte police said in a news release issued this morning.

It’s probably evil to mock suicides, but really, what situation could be so incredibly awful that getting smacked in the kisser by a few million tons of freight choggying along at 60 miles an hour seems like a good idea?

Likewise, when activists talk about “firearms deaths,” bear in mind that the vast majority of those, in the USA, are suicides.
