The Daily News said Rios was an architect who managed a project to rebuild parts of Staten Island destroyed by hurricane Sandy.

Supposedly Frank Herbert got the idea for Sandworm riding Fremen (Dune) from seeing Indians riding on trains.
I've ridden in open gondola cars on real trains.
Nothing much to recommend it.
Still looking for my first ride on shai-hulud. Now THAT would be worth head trauma.
