Re "Crude oil trains to roll through city" (Page A1, June 7): Are the railroads and oil industries telling us they can't build a rail line for hazardous materials that stays well away from heavily populated areas or sensitive environments? They can build piplines the length of Alaska or from the Canadian border to the Gulf. Why not rail lines that bypass cities or compromise public safety?
Why are our public officials telling us we need to be ready for an incident? Why aren't they telling the industries to ship their hazardous materials by another route? Look closer. There's something very wrong with this picture. Very wrong
