An absolutely AMAZING story in Cincinnatti--evacuations, poisonous chemicals, and nobody seems to know exactly what's going on here...

Investigators from the Federal Railroad Administration are looking into how the railcar full of a toxic chemical came to rest, unattended for at least five months, near the busy local airport. Officials from Westlake and the railroad also are on scene to help.
Luken said he's been given no answers about how or why it happened.
"They will not answer that question, or they profess not to know," Luken said. "That means they are not being forthcoming.
"Like I told them: 'Wal-Mart can track a pair of socks across the country, and you guys can't track a railcar full of dangerous chemicals?' "
