99.9% safety record? less dependence on foreign oil? massive job creation? We need ALL of these things. And by the way, those tracks have been there long before Doris Quonones was even born. If she doesn't feel safe enough then she should move..... ah but then there are gasoline tankers, oil trucks, overhead airplanes, feul barges and solar panel-laden trailers to worry about. What is a job-bashing, tree-hugging zelot to do ???
