As if my dander hasn’t been up enough this week, I have to come across this article which appeared on line in DelawareOnline The News Journal.
The article is pretty critical of Amtrak’s board, so I don’t have to say much more.
It seems like the attitude is pretty much coming to, “Let’s dump the property and get out before something really bad happens.” Well, it has already happened. One day, if things go as they continue to go today, this country (United States) will have no national passenger rail service. Then the traveling public can sink or swim with the buses (eeeyuch!), the airlines (worse!) and the highways (getting worse all the time.)
