Mexico City, Nairobi - many parts of South America, all over Europe and what is lacking in the US? Oh yeah, any form of decent, rapid transit. We just can't build those trains, why? Afraid they will go so fast that people will not be able to breathe? Or is it just because of our long marriage to oil and cars?

Thanks for highlighting the contrasts Kit and asking the key questions! You cannot currently send a star to Kit because you have done so within the last week.

Rapid transit is all well and good but how about investing some in the outlying areas that are crying for clean water; viable energy sources and an infrastructure? Nice train though.

am glad that they have made some progress in terms of transportation and connectivity. hopefully it enables more people to travel to seek a better life and also greater access to basic necessities.
