I left San Diego this morning to head to LA and extolled the virtues of train travel on a videoblog post I recorded while riding up the coast. I spent some time writing a post and catching up on email. I took a bunch of pics I sent to Flickr. I got to Union Station and received a call from my breakfast appointment wanting to make sure I was OK. He said that 9 people had been killed in a train accident. I was shocked. Turns out it was 10 and 200 injured. Wow, what a senseless tragedy.
