  • Where are the complaints about the even larger ‘crony’ highway industry? I’d love to know the amount of money (sub-par or otherwise) that I-95 or I-5 contributes to pay back our ‘investments.’ Politically I am probably somewhere to the right of Attila the Hun, but this is the one area where the Libertarians, Republicans, Independent Conservatives and our various ‘think tanks’ have it completely wrong. Ever do a search for the source of funding for the Heritage Foundation? Cato? Virtually every cent came from oil, gas, asphalt and the auto industry. While I’d be the first to agree that there is NOTHING wrong with those industries or their pursuit of profit, it would make their ‘studies’ of everything rail seem a bit suspect if not downright
    skewed.
