High-speed-rail will be our generation’s legacy

Perhaps one day high-speed trains under catenary will operate in Florida. This train, No. 150, is in revenue service and is near Kingston, R. I. in 2001.

    Secretary La Hood apparently has chosen to ignore the Congressional Research Service report on High Speed Passenger Rail (HSPR). Congress's research points out the geography and demographics of the US do not support rail or HSPR as an efficient means of transportation. We are primarily a suburban country. It takes high density populations to make HSPR efficient. Even Europe must subsidize it's rail systems. In an era of massive government deficits and browning we can not afford projects that require large subsidies. The legacy that HSPR is most likely to leave is contributing to the financial meltdown of the country , hyperinflation and the destruction of the dollar. That what would not be good for most of us.
