The Belgium Tragedy Has California Train Stations on Pins and Needles

As you may or may not know, I commute on the trains in Los Angeles to and from work. The actual train ride is great but the logistical side of it is horrendous. As of this writing, the train traveling to my job is stopped. Why? The train conductor announced over the PA system that the next train station is closed down due to a suspicious package. Out of curiosity, I checked Google Maps on my phone to see how close I am, in case I need to break this emergency window and run, and I'm 8 minutes from the station. The tragedy befallen Belgium, I'm sure, woke up the sleepy, unmotivated train employees I see standing around, to finally do their job. Let's hope it's nothing serious, but one never knows in these days of terrorism finding populated areas. Just some thoughts to share on this thirsty Thursday.

The terrorists are achieving ther goals. But I'm glad that everyone is being cautious.
