Dateline Friday:

It was announced today that U.S. Airways and Norfolk Southern Railroad are engaged in a merger that will result in the largest air/rail logistics company in the country.

When contacted for comment, an unidentified NS spokesperson rebuffed questions pertaining to the merger and was alleged to reply regarding the above referenced photo; "what, it is just a choo choo train and one of those airliner things, I don't think people should look for any hidden meaning in the photo."

Additionally, when queried about the impending merger, U.S. Airlines President Barkley B. Cooltimes, stated that on the advice of counsel, he could not comment on the alleged merger since negotiations were on going, and because his was on vacation this week.

By the noon hour Eastern Time, shares of both U.S. Airways and Norfolk Southern had risen significantly on the New York Stock Exchange fueling speculation that the merger had already moved through the initial phases, despite the lack of a tacit announcement by either company substantiating such a fact.
