    Seems like the same thing happened at the energy company when you-know-who was kicked upstairs. Wonder if Rose is the guy with a bright future taking the place of ol-whats his face? Hope so as I have watched many of his interviews - seems like a sharp guy.

    The Rose-Ice team has done a superb job integrating the assets and operations of several Class 1 roads. And without Wall Street breathing down their necks at every turn they've been freed up to do even better. I own BRK/B for BNSF alone and take everything lse as gravy. I applaud the move.
