Despite my post yesterday, it seems the GOP-elects in WI are still determined to stop high speed rail in the state.  I’m just going to say it: This is short-sighted.  Mass transit, especially high speed rail, is a key component to energy independence, ending addiction to fossil fuels, and improving the nation’s infrastructure and economy.  China, for example, is spending signifiant resources on high speed rail across the country.
