Evening Open Thread

There's some reason to believe that derailed Canadian train was tampered with.

Canadian authorities have found evidence that a train that crashed in Lac-Megantic, Quebec, was tampered with, provincial police Capt. Michel Forget said Tuesday.

There have been many questions about the train explosion that wiped out a swath of Lac-Megantic's downtown, killing at least 15 people. As of Tuesday evening, 35 people were still missing, Forget said.

Investigators had earlier said that they are trying to figure out if the train's brakes were disabled before it barreled at a dangerous speed into the Quebec town, derailed and burst into a deadly inferno.

A source says he doesn't suspect malice or terrorism but I'm trying very hard to figure out how you power down a train's brake engine without malice or for the purposes of terrorism.
