Otto: As rail goes, Florida seems to be on a train to nowhere

Steve Otto There was a story this week that Amtrak was considering cutting a 600-mile stretch from its Southwest Chief that runs from Chicago to Los Angeles. The move would eliminate service to a dozen or more towns in Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico. Amtrak might reconsider if those four states cough up $4 million a year for the next 10 years to upgrade track and services.

I’ll admit, I long to be one of those idiots who chases tornados, or stands out in the wind with a microphone in my hand, dodging sheet metal, shingles and flying cars.
Call me sick- I don’t care
