Why not an Interstate Rail System?

Well, we don't need another "IRS" for one thing. A better name would be needed. But a New York Times article about the economy and what to do about it drew this comment from a reader.

Invest billions of dollars to develop an interstate passenger rail system similar to the interstate highway system. This would do much to create jobs, stimulate growth in the economy and reduce our dependence on oil.

Comment thread is 259 entries long and this was an editor's pick. I like it, too.

Sometimes when I'm driving an Interstate I look at all that space in the median and wonder if a light rail line could be running along with the highway. But I'm just an old guy blogging. Whadda I know?
