Wow.  That is surprising news.  Just a terrible event.  He seemed well-liked and was doing good work in Atlanta.  The head of Chicago's Metra, Phil Pagano, did the same thing about 12 years ago (by stepping in front of one of his own trains no less).  For Pagano, it was discovered later he was embezzling money.  I really hope this isn't the case with Mr. Parker, he seemed like a genuinely great guy.

Stepped in front of one of his own agency's trains last night around 1030pm.

MARTA board chair says he had NOT been fired.

It was already known that Pagano was embezzling. He was to meet with the Metra board the day of his death to learn his fate.

Sometimes the issue is relationships.  A great guy and operating officer I knew did it over fights with his wife, in front of her.

Stay tuned in, might  be more to this story later. $100 billion is a lot of money.

$100 Billion? What are you talking about?

I think having the Chicago thread piggybacking on the original one is unfortunate and confusing.
