Captain Haddock

(no subject)

There was a Green Line accident this morning at Boylston Street, two trains collided and folks went to the hospital and all. The Glob online is running a story complete with a humonjus picture of an injured rider being taken out on a backboard right past a station decoration of the MBTA's cartoon Charlie mascot grinning and giving the thumbs-up.

On the one hand the irony of this picture is morbidly amusing, but on the other hand my god, my object empathy (which I described a few years ago) is flaring up something fierce.
