We have been reading the February issue of Trains, which carries a commentary by Don Phillips of the International Herald Tribune. Though we wish we could provide a link, Trains simply does not provide the content of his article on line.
Mainly, Mr. Phillips says what we said about David Gunn's firing, though we said it shortly after it occurred. While we would like to take credit, we haven't had any luck in getting Mr. Phillips to read this blog. If he has, it has been in stealth mode and he hasn't submitted any comments.
Bottom line, the firing of Gunn was political, based on fraudulent information at worst and extremely poor management by Amtrak's board at best.
More sparks will fly in the future.
