And? You claimed there was NO rail connection at all. Nice spin.

This is the weakest admission of being wrong I've ever seen, but I'll take it anyway.

In past years there have been more than one a day, as there will be in the future with the new HSR.

I thought you said you were going to answer whether or not you've ever been to Milwaukee before, but I can't seem to find that info anywhere in your post?
