Thanks to Deadspin's coverage of the difficulties people had getting home from the Belmont Stakes (all the excitement of animal abuse, with sadly 30% fewer fancy hats than the Kentucky Derby), I'm now aware of the fact that the Long Island Railroad has a Twitter feed to keep travellers up-to-date. Today's tweets have an Oregon Trail feel to them. Sorry, Jamaica folks.

I keep refreshing the page (don't you dare judge me) to see "The 7:04AM train from Montauk due Jamaica at 9:57AM has died."
