Well apparently he's not dead. Not by a long shot! Nope. For all you non-fans, haters, and HHH overs, he posts from the grave, and here's the very latest output from the greatest railroader since James J. Hill.

Their time has passed. Obviously not so for Hillbilly. He's still got some friends, and colleagues in high places to push his agenda on the railroad industry as a whole.

Have you read his thoughts in the article? If not, please return to ***'s hyperlink and do so! That's an order mister. Then we'll discuss Mr. Willard and your personal hero "Wick" Moorman. Perhaps...

OK, I read the article. Laudatory puff piece, looks like. Get back to us when you've read the book.

Sorry ta disappoint ya, but I'm not among the multitude of Hillbilly worshipers at bj.com. In fact there's very little about HHH that interests me.

It seems that when he passed last year there was a collective sigh of relief among industry notables. He and his ilk are better off dead than running Class-I outfits, although Harrison is still trying. From his grave. Maybe he should be exhumed, and rechecked for signs of life eh?

Nah, better leave him lie there and rot in peace!

The final word on Hunter "Hillbilly" Harrison from one who knew him best. However few others were so fond of him, or those who were interested in commenting on camera. No surprise there, considering his last days at CSX...

This was his most impressive move of all, beside his unplanned exit that is...
