I usually agree with George Will, but Saturday I didn’t!
Amtrak is a vital part of the transportation system in the U.S.
With gas prices rising, driving and flying are too expensive. In addition, who wants to deal with the long lines and the expensive parking at the airport?
With rising costs, riding Amtrak, you actually get to see the country. When you are flying, even the Appalachian Mountains, the Great Smoky Mountains and the Rocky Mountains are just blips from 35,000 feet.
