    Interesting that the article pointed out that one of the railroad’s owners simply bought a controlling share, and now, surprise, the proposed route no longer goes through *his* land. Nice, with enough money you can force someone else to give up their land and livelihood.

    I agree with the landowner who said, “I don’t think we ought to sacrifice my ground or my neighbors’ ground so some corporation can make a profit by shipping coal to Asia.”

    Good luck to them.

    I’m looking forward to hearing more about this as time goes on. Here in Washington, many cities and towns along the proposed rail route don’t want the trains running coal through them on their way to Longview. I happen to live in one of those towns and I sure as heck don’t want the coal trains coming through Puyallup. I can truly understand why the landowners are up in arms about this. I would be too. I’m rooting for the small guy in this 100%. Those with money should not be allowed to act like “bullies” and force onto others what they themselves don’t want. Living in harmony with your fellow man isn’t an option for them I guess.
