Which is ridiculous

A couple of weeks ago, I saw a northbound train whose consist was entirely shiny new DOT-111 tank cars from Mexico, which are usually headed up toward Iowa and Nebraska to ship ethanol to refineries to blend with gasoline. With fuel demand falling off a cliff, all those tank cars could go straight from Corn Country to hand sanitizer factories to flood the country with hand sanitizer while leaving distilleries to do business as usual.
