Why High-Speed Rail Makes No Sense! by The Elephant's Child

Here’s everything you ever wanted to know about transportation from the Reason Foundation. Adrian Moore discusses the  high-speed rail folly, explodes a number of myths along the way and explains why it just makes no sense. Bob Poole takes on the highway problem, our transportation history, our transportation problems and how we can fix them.

This is a lengthy video, 45 minutes, (but you would spend that much time on a TV show)  interesting, informative, important. I took notes. The highway trust funds are coming up for re-authorization this year, and the Obama administration wants to divert highway funds to mass transit, bike lanes and more interesting things in spite of Obama’s constant harping on “crumbling highways and bridges.”
