    I read an article the other day about Amtrak's Acela trains -- the fast trains they run up and down the Northeast Corridor. (Wish I could find the link.)

    It talked about how one reason why the Northeast is the only region that gets Acela service is because the tracks there had "recently" gotten a major upgrade. When is "recently"? In the 1930s.

    We desperately need to start investing in our infrastructure -- roads and rails -- again.
