Common Sense Goes A Long Way

february 17, 2005

Some people are truly dumb. Here I am riding the Light Rail to work and we are approaching the Paseo De San Antonio station. This is the station where San Jose State students depart the train and walk three blocks to class. There is an announcement by the train operator. He tells the students to be careful and to be mindful of the train when crossing over the tracks. The reason for the announcement? Yesterday there was a guy listening to his CD player and reading a book who walked in front of a train and almost got struck. What kind of dumb ass is that?
