Chinese Smoker Stops World Fastest Train
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
A Chinese traveler must be Superman. We say this because the person was able to stop the fastest train in the world. That bullet train just started shooting between two Chinese cities, but a smoker triggered an alarm, and the super-fast train had to stop for two-and-a-half hours. A railway spokesman says smoking is strictly forbidden, even in the toilet.
(Soundbite of song, "Smoking in the Boys Room")
MOTLEY CRUE (Rock Band): (Singing) Smoking in the boys room. I was smoking in the boys room.
INSKEEP: It's MORNING EDITION.
