    Yesterday’s paper has a photo of musician Nicole Murphy sitting on railroad tracks.

    Trespassing on railroad tracks is dangerous, and the recent trend of celebrity shots on tracks sends the wrong message.

    We urge safe behavior around railroad tracks — which means staying off them!

    Railroads are the safest way to travel and ship freight, but as everyone knows a train is big and can’t stop quickly. Your own recklessness could be fatal or leave you maimed.
