Comicomment: Lingering shadows of the East Palestine train derailment

(ECNS)--One year ago, a Norfolk Southern freight train derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, displacing a community, jeopardizing health, harming the local environment, and exposing the country’s inability to handle disasters effectively. Now, a year later, federal and local officials insist East Palestine and the surrounding regions are safe, health issues still linger there.

As the presidential election campaign thrives with huge money invested and promises hard to cash in, the unrealized “health freedom” highlights the inaction of the U.S. government. With local residents’ unwillingness to move back, the question arises: will East Palestine in Ohio become a “ghost town” on the next anniversary?
