Amtrak and a synthetic flying machine

June 15, 2006

This item in the Times highlights the fact that Amtrak has a totally unreliable infrasturcture, much of it built during the hoover administration. Yesterday, on Mythbusters, we learned about the billions of dollars that have been poured into personal flying machines over the years, and the hundreds of millions that still go in to flying cars because, in Jamie's words, "you can't pave the whole country." Our airlines and roadways are overburdened and fuel inefficient.  Isn't it time to just invest in better regional and inter-city hi-speed rail in this country?
