Weekend read: End of the line

My recommended read for this weekend is Charles Fleming’s moving piece from Los Angeles Magazine, in which he describes the suicide of Ron Iseli. He uses this very personal story to illustrate the wider problem of preventing deaths – accidental and otherwise – on railways. It’s an absorbing yet disturbing read.
