Re: “My friend Brandon Bostian, the Amtrak 188 engineer

I wonder when the last time this guy actually spoke to Brandon. It's very hard to be someone's friend if you don't talk to them regularly. As far as the interviews and bombardment of media buzz I experienced the same thing the Friday after the train wreck. I spoke to Brandon hours after the train wreck and have spoken to him several times since then. He and his lawyers desperately want him out of the media and the national attention. If the writer of this article was truly a friend of Brandon he would have respected his and his lawyers wishes and not put it on the Internet. I appreciate his support for my friend and his comments about his work ethic but now that this is in the past lets keep it there and move on, for Brandon's Sake.
