Convention center staff helps train derailment victims

Here's today's helping of Southern hospitality: The Raleigh Convention Center opened its doors to those who weren't wounded in a train derailment caused by a collision with a truck (the wounded went to the hospital, of course). They provided phone banks, a cool place to calm down in the middle of a heat wave, and refreshments. I hope the same thoughtful staff will bring their caring to the new convention center when it opens in September.
