    Darwinism strikes again

    QUARRYVILLE, Pa. (AP) -May 6, 2008 -- Police say a man found dead on an abandoned Lancaster County rail line apparently was electrocuted while trying to cut down copper high-voltage wires.

    The man was found Monday on the abandoned Norfolk Southern Enola Low-Grade Line in Eden Township. State Police say he apparently climbed a tower and tried to cut down copper wires, not realizing they were carrying electricity.
    Such thefts have increased as the price of scrap copper has quadrupled in recent years. And even though trains haven't run on the line for years, its catenary lines still help power trains on part of Amtrak's East Coast corridor.

    Coroner Stephen Diamantoni says an autopsy is planned Tuesday. He says it appears the man was electrocuted and the death was accidental. Police are still trying to identify the man.

    His family will probably have his grave marker cast in bronze and somebody will come along and steal it for scrap value.

    A couple years back we had some idiot steal the lines from our building to the poles. It was a machine shop... 480v 3 phase. He managed to not kill himself, but I have no idea how. This idiot used a set of aluminum handled garden shears and a cheap pair of rubber gloves. Left the gloves sitting at the crime scene... with his name written in them. Cops found him in the back yard, burning the insulation off of the copper.

    And we wonder why these folks resort to a life of crime.
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    With the money his family will probably get from the lawsuit, they could cast his marker in gold.

    If the abandoned Norfolk Southern Enola Low-Grade Line had proper signs, fences, guards, etc then it would have never happened...He was such a good guy, etc, etc.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    ...Did he procreate first? Darwin's rules only work if it catches them before they procreate. I hate that fine print.
