The train “operator” had apparently tied a cord to the throttle, did not set the brake, and stepped off the train – possibly to check on the status of the weather. The situation does raise the question of sabotage/terrorism butt so far the MBTA is maintaining their position that “mistakes were made.”
Sounds like a metaphor for America to me. I wonder who’s writing these scripts?
footnote: “third rail” in politics is a metaphor for any issue so controversial that it is "charged" and "untouchable" to the extent that any politician or public official who dares to broach the subject will invariably suffer politically. The metaphor comes from the high-voltage third rail in some electric railway systems. Stepping on this usually results in electrocution, and the use of the term in politics relates to the risk of "political death" that a politician would face by tackling certain issues. – Wiki
