Max Armstrong talks about train travel, major mail theft, China growing more soybeans and hairless thieves stealing hairdryers.

Amtrak is trying to increase train travel by introducing shorter routes.

A Michigan Postal Service worker has been charged with mail theft, after it was discovered she has been witholding mail since September.

China has been buying more soybeans from Brazil, and is now saying it'll try to grow more of its own.

We often marvel at the stupidity of criminals, particularly some in St. Louis who were stealing hair dryers.
