Sensible transportation policy

One of my favorite interests is transportation, especially railroads. This is an area which has been sadly neglected around here. let me correct that with a recent speech from former transportation secretary Gil Carmichael.

Yep, he does deal with Amtrak, but that is not "topic 1." He talks about the successes of private companies in developing freight shipping patterns that are efficient fast and safe. He also brings government into the picture, but as a partner and not the leader.

What would America be like if we could have a national transportation policy that was market driven instead of the mess created by the powerful airline and trucking lobbies?

Good for thought. Enjoy.
