I laughed and almost fell out of my chair. It’s true , Forbes gave NS a good award for their company activity’s doing good things for climate change and protecting the environment.
I would think 100 times before taking a recall. However, I assume that there are many more people who would go back than those who wouldn't?
Norfolk Southern racks up initial $387 million charge for Ohio disaster
Earning results will be announced on April 26th. I can’t wait to see the results. Any predictions?
So I wonder if management will take a page from their own book that every accident is preventable? Examine all the changes they made to see if they were the cause? Have a hearing with themselves? Put themselves on the street? Fire themselves? Make... — read more
