We’ve all heard the expression, “There are two kinds of people in politics – those who want to be something and those who want to do something.” It isn’t hard to tell the two apart.

Inter City Rail Paper by Gary Prost 2005
The future of the High Speed Rail Authority is now in serious doubt. As an advocate of a statewide passenger rail system, this brings me great joy.

Creation of a fast passenger rail network starting with existing rail and later upgrading it to 100-120 mph would be a more rational approach with faster returns on investment.
