how horrible. how many deaths are attributable to the train? why cant these trains be undergrounded? It creeps me out to get on the train after one of these incidents.
Yes, underground trains, let's raise our taxes more. Brilliant.
real sad. as sad as it appears, it is impossible to stop this kind of thing when a person decides to end life this way. i don't want to appear mean and silly, but why did this person choose a monday instead of week-end.
Karen said: how many deaths are attributable to the train?
They are committing suicide. It's not the trains that are going after the people.
Why on Monday and not on the week end? Depression is not a "week end only" sickness.
What's going on? I just heard on T.V of another fatality on the train tracks in Palo Alto. Two days in a row? I think this recession is affecting us. This is the aftermath of our lovely ex-President Bush.
The highest number of fatalities by Caltrain, almost all suicides, was 20 in 1995. Who was president in 1995? Do you blame your man Clinton for those suicides? Weren't times great then? Why were people jumping in front of times when life was so grand in the era of Before W?
MV RESIDENT ....
YOU LIKE TO ARGUE?
1. In 1995 were any of those fatalities "two days in a row"?
2. 2009 has just begun.... damn, settle down.
3. As a matter of fact, Clinton was one of our better presidents, and was president from 1993 - 2001. How many fatalities were in 2002?
4. I don't know why there were so many fatalities in 1995, I really doubt it was because of Clinton.
P.S. You sound like a defensive nut.
