    oye @ the students thunderous booes at Karl Rove :/

    I bet he expected a rock star welcome after the wannabe gangsta rap song he recently did to repair his image.

    Thanks for the train, Andy. I love trains…

    When are we going to realize what a good thing–in terms of environment, safety, aesthetics (massive concrete vs relatively tiny rails?)and, well, coolness–we had in trains and bring them back. With some of the gov’t support that goes into every alternative. Amtrak? It’s a national embarassment.
