We have the technology to run trains at 300+ mph. The energy saving would be quantum, and the massive public works investment involved in building a new railroad system would make the economy sing. (The Chinese have already made a start on one.) Would I contemplate a twelve hour ride from LA to NY? Of course I would, if it was from city center to city center, in comfort, with a bar car and a restaurant, and no cabs to and from the airport or invasive security. You can’t hi-jack a train and the tracks could have built in safety measures. I love the idea of high-tech, mag-lev trains and could ride the topic for pages, but I’ll leave that for later. But, of course, as we can all surmise, the oil barons and the airline moguls will fight it to the last bastard.

Click here to solve the Mystery. (It’s well worth the effort)
