BNSF advertisement

I had to smile when I read the advertisement for the BNSF Railway in the December 17 Spokesman-Review. The full-page advertisement, entitled “On The Right Track,” touted numerous attributes for moving freight by rail. Among them was “cut particulate matter emissions by nearly 50%”. Yikes, I did the math on that and realized that half of infinity is infinity.
