Default Re: The Pinkie Finger Prism

Water and sewer systems throughout the country are in dire need of upgrades and there is almost no chance that outlays provided for this type of work would substantially flow to foreign workers. I won't say that high-speed rail is a entirely foolish dream, but would it really be a nationally effective system? The traffic demand from New York to Los Angeles or New York to south Florida is probably high enough to fill trains, but the distances are such that high-speed trains are still many hours behind already existing sytems. The Boston to Washington, or possibly as far south as North Carolina might be viable. Los Angeles to the SF Bay area, possibly. Houston to Dallas Fort Worth, maybe? Nothing serving Chicago would be economically justifiable...Denver, Seattle, Memphis, Mobile, Boise, Cincinnati, Kansas City: it is all the same. Unfortunately for our country, lots of money has been squandered and we should be making hard choices on what to invest in. High-speed trains do not merit any national money at this time.
