Might want to have an alternate train picture handy

Evidently there’s a strangler in the Maidenhead area, so I thought I’d go online and find out more from our local paper. Scrolling through the news archives I saw a story from last week about the “New train boss promises improvements” and this week there was the story “Death on train tracks.”

People in the UK jump in front of trains all the time — it’s a well known method of suicide in a country where guns are difficult to obtain — but what I found morbidly amusing was that the two articles use the same stock art photo of a train, thereby visually associating the two unrelated stories.

Seems to me that “improvements” and “death” should be as hard to connect as possible, but maybe that’s just me. 😉
