Maybe there are others like me, others who like to read interviews with powerful, influential people who are now far removed from their positions that changed lives and corporations. Usually, these people are looser with their observations and more profound with their insights. I recently discovered such an interview during a websearch for something entirely different.
The interview was with Mr. John Ingram, who was President and CEO of the Chicago, Rock Island, and Pacific Railroad, just before the property's last days, and was also in a very high position in the Federal Railroad Administration. I had heard that Mr. Ingram was a little bitter immediately after he failed to raise "The Rock" from the depths of ruin. He had every reason to be bitter. I have always felt that had the events that led to the liquidation of "The Rock" occurred in the Reagan Administration rather than the Carter Administration, the property would have had a greater chance of survival. The fact that a lot of the trackage of the old "Rock Island Railroad" remains to this day supports my view.
At any rate, if you enjoy looking back from the viewpoint of someone who once held great power, check out this interview. I think you will find it fascinating.
