    Caltrain won’t automatically get level boarding if it chooses electric trains that support it; they will still need to change platforms.

    It was released as I was making the post.

  • That only works for murdering random strangers. The most gratifying murders are when it’s your enemies, and the car technique doesn’t apply then.

    But how hard would they investigate a hit man who uses a car instead of a gun?

  • Fair point. But a professional hit man might prefer to avoid even a cursory investigation.
