Breaking news today about Obama's interest in getting higher-speed rail in place. From the comments already there, it's obvious there is a huge concern over the potential for this to turn into a political gravy train. Given that energy constrained future lies ahead, and we are well behind the mitigation curve, I'll take as a positive any effort to jump start the process. I think there is a lot of work to be done to ensure it's done right. However, it is up to us, the pesky taxpayer, to make sure this is done right. Are you up for that?
