Lots of people talking, but I wonder if any communication is going on.

Re: A Thread for Random Musings

 

Today I saw children playing on the railroad tracks, tossing and bouncing balls. There was no adult supervision in sight. I shouted at them that the train was coming (which it was) but they either didn't hear or paid me no mind. Fortunately, all that was lost was one of their balls. Old and fat as I am, I don't think I would have made it to the other end of the platform in time had one of them fallen in front of the train.

 

The kids then tried to get on the train, but the operator put them off--I think transit cops might have been called. Later, we passengers heard her describing them over the radio.

 

I think it may be time to reissue those PSAs on TV and comics about not playing on railroad tracks.
