High-speed disaster

Apparently Obama has a plan to start connecting major metropolitan cities by high-speed train. Minneapolis to Chicago is one of the proposed routes.

Maybe I'm just naive, but don't we already have a few high-speed routes to Chicago? Service providers include Southwest, Delta, American Airlines...

One-way fares start at $75. Trains won't be able to touch that with a 10-foot-pole and stay profitable.


Blogger Real Debate declared,

Come on Joey, they are projecting the KRM line to run at an 83% loss.

Profit is not a consideration.

This is about the greater good, profit matters now.

So sayeth Doyle & Obama.
