Good morning norwest, didnt know how else to get a message to you, and this is off-topic -- but a young woman was killed in suburban Chicago, and topix is filled with comments perpetuating the myth that a person can be "sucked under" a passing train. Even at 79 mph, a train simply doesnt generate a vortex of wind strong enuff to suck anything underneath it much bigger than a candy wrapper - any thoughts on where to find a study on this ?
