    The cost of highspeed rail is expensive, but can we really afford not to consider it?

    When I lived in South Jersey yet, I would drive up to Mercer County & catch NJT at Hamilton station, right off 295, to go to NYC.

    I was talking with MOH about taking the Zephyr(& connrct with the Coast Starlight & the Surfliner) out there for that, but it all depends on if I have enough PTO available by then(& if our budget allows).

    Sherrell- You might want to clue those DI's into the fact that the Snyder family contributes even more to the Dems(about 52/48%). Boycotting In & Out will probably have the same result that the boycotts of CFA did. Customer lines out the door & around the building.
