As a followup to last Friday's post, pictured above is an GP-38 locomotive owned by US Sugar Corporation's short line railroad, the South Central Florida Express Railroad. They're also centered here in Clewiston, FL and haul our refined product to customers throughout Florida and to other railroads like CSX and Norfolk~Southern for shipment across the country.
As I said, this is a follow-up... So if you can tell me what is it that I find so funny about this photo?
And now a moron report...
Friday JP and I went to a local restaurant for lunch and this is a conversation I overheard from a couple in the booth behind me, discussing an article in the newspaper.
Man: "Says here the Russian troops in Georgia are on higher alert..."
Woman: "Russians? In Georgia? That's a little close to here isn't it? I didn't know there were Russians in Georgia!"
I almost choked on my coffee.
Remind me again how advanced we've come as a civilization, please?
I keep forgetting.
