Any rational, reasonable person will agree that no intelligent individual or entity would deliberately place a railroad track in close proximity to residential homes if space was available to do otherwise. This situation has come about because of terrible planning and a misanthropic decision to dispense with human rights and the safety and quality of lives of those in our neighborhood in the name of moving more trains around. Increasing train traffic is what this is all about, at the expense of innocent human beings who had nothing to do with the shortsighted planning and no reason to believe, prior to this disturbing Double Track proposal, that their collective safety could be so threatened and their quality of life so objectionably degraded. Who would expect setback regulations in Canada and the city of Stockton, California to be reasonable and humane, while those in Los Angeles allow human beings to be treated with no more consideration than expendable refuse on the side of the road?
