Railroads ---> back to the 1800's

I rode Germany's ICE last week -- going over 200 MPH on the ground (while the flight home became airborne at 196 MPH). This was NOT 1800s technology!

However, it may make sense in Europe but it doesn't in most of North America.

Electrons carry data much faster. Electronic conferencing eliminates much of formerly necessary business travel. And it’s a big time and cost efficiency.
