Authorities reportedly discovered another body in the rubble of the Amtrak crash site in Philadelphia this morning, bringing the death toll from the accident to eight. Eleven passengers reportedly remain missing (UPDATE: Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter says that all 243 passengers on board have been accounted for).
I'm sure that railroads are a tough business. Probably takes a lot of skill and savvy to turn a profit. I'll give you that. But you know what is not a tough business in which to profit? Selling food and drinks at a virtually unlimited markup to a captive audience with no other options. Amtrak cannot even make a dollar doing that.
