A training tipster just shot us this email:

Tom Friedman on the Acela Express 2163 to DC berates an Amtrak employee for not taking his trash quickly enough, telling the guy, “it’s your job! I’m trapped in my seat.”

According to the tipster, Friedman had his tray table down and laptop out and went on to explain, “this is why the nation is in decline.”

No word from the tipster as to whether or not he also blamed Bush.
