China Gets Fast

Reading The New York Times tonight about China's high speed rail system (which is already carrying more people than our domestic flights) I turned green (and yellow? and red?) with envy.

Why not us?

Why not a country where I can get in a train in New York at noon and be in LA by 2AM?  Please!

Who the hell likes to fly? No one.
Who loves a train?  Everyone.

Why aren't we investing in what we love?


Call me a hater of being five miles in the air, bumping along in gassy displeasure. Whatever. Where's my modern Iron Horse?
