We were lucky: This time it was just a lot of corn
The recent derailment of 11 railcars in the Feather River Canyon probably won’t garner the kind of attention it should. That’s because nobody got hurt and the cargo that spilled into the river was just corn. It was a lot of corn, but still, just corn.
If the railcars were carrying volatile Bakken oil, this would be an entirely different story.
