    Curmudgeon alert:
    High school photography teacher? Must have been a so-called “School of the Arts” to justify a dedicated slot at the HS level. And therein is the problem I have with Schools of the Arts as substitutes for high school education: the sciences get short-changed, as evidenced in this supposedly otherwise intelligent woman’s ignorance of the LAWS OF PHYSICS which cost her her life.

    @Boobie–then again, Darwin…in whom I’m sure Ms. Trainspot believed unquestoningly.

    “Teacher hit from behind”
    I hope she wasn’t teaching a “Photography Safety 101″ class.

    The teacher who was hit from behind by a train is a sure candidate for any future Darwin awards. Good grief, how Wile Coyote stupid and more dead can she get.

    Maybe we should notify these guys about the incivility of the MI House democrats.

    * Teacher hit by train *

    Why didn’t she do what they do in hollyweird when they film things coming straight at the camera? They put a mirror in front of the object and film from an angle so the camera and crew are safely to one side. This way, she would not have had to stand on any set of tracks for her photo.

    A sociologist should study her current group of students and see which ones die in stupid (preventable) accidents involving cameras and taking photos. In other words, they will have learned nothing.

    “Lots of respectable people been hit by trains …”

    When my uncle was with the occupation forces in Japan, after the late unpleasantness, he stepped out of the way of the train he saw and into the path of one he didn’t.

    Apparently Japanese marshalling yards had little room for error.
