The Metro-North commuter train from Westport, Connecticut to Grand Central Station in Manhattan is a symbol of success in that iconic novel "The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit." Today, it has joined the other tragic events in the state as being associated with tragedy.
THE NEW YORK TIMES reports that yesterday during the evening rush hour the train heading back to Connecticut crashed with another Metro-North train. About 60 were injured, 5 critically. Those tracks which carry the Masters of the Universe from their suburban homes to the money pits are damaged. Never again will anyone board that train, start working on their laptops, and assume they will arrive at their destination safely.
