With all the talk about Columbus taking over the world yet time after time they are excluded in state growth.
Some folks just cannot except the truth....
Local residents obviously would rather accept the crumbs they are given.

I think it should be important to note that the amount of money being given to high speed rail is what - 8 billion? That would cover about 15-25 or so miles of finished high speed track/train projects. So.....

With $8,000,000,000.00? They have been studying this for how long now? Although I am a optimist by nature, this nice piece of work brings out the pessimist in me. Good luck! Enjoy the dream. Nice map. All on $8,000,000,000.00. When pigs grow wings and fly, we can start the evolutionary process now by throwing a few off the porch.

If Columbus had been mentioned as getting it you would be calling yourself negative....
