Friday morning, I wrote about the trouble getting accurate information about Kerry’s campaign stop in Kansas, and linked to an article that said it was uncertain if it would even happen. Well, it turns out that they said it would happen but it didn’t (CNN.com). Thousands of supports watched Kerry’s train whiz by at speed.
The story is that they planned to make the stop but didn’t tell the conductor. For those of you not familiar with how railroads work, the conductor is the one person that must know because he is the one that is responsible to clearing the train to start and stop.
I suspect that the problem is more deep — a miscommunication, perhaps?
