    these Republican governors are being. To score ideological points, they're willing to hold their citizens hostage in the Bronze Age.

    My prediction? High-speed rail is going to be the collective, state-sponsored project that will decisively position China as the dominant, cutting-edge center of global capitalism. Republican nay-sayers are going to wake up twenty years from now and wondered what the heck happened. "Why are we no longer the envy of the world?" they will wonder.

    Or, more likely, they won't wonder it, because they'll still be saying "We're number One!" for decades after we've become Number Seven.
