    That's pretty crazy. He was in poor health and took a leave of absence on Thursday. Time will tell if he was good for CSX or not, or if he was there long enough to have a positive effect. I know many railroaders hated him, but he sure did make the Canadians profitable.

    It's the same things your whole life. "Clean up your room!", "Stand up straight!", "Pick up your feet!", "Take it like a man!", "Be nice to your sister!", "Don't mix beer and wine, EVER!" Oh yeah, "Don't drive on the railroad tracks!"
