Dispatch from the Empire Builder: Platform Talk

We arrived early in Shelby Montana and have 40 minutes. It's a nice day so
Dolly-girl and me stepped out to exercise shank's mare. Why I looked for Mr
T, Dolly-girl patrolled the platform, recording shards of stray
conversations among passengers and crew. Fatal accidents, concealed
weapons, snow storm delays, working after 911 when only trains were
running, aliases, and all sorts of talk no one needs to hear or know.
People passing time ... Dolly-girl on the case!
