Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

High speed rail is great, but it's at best half the equation. What's really needed is the getting rid of local control of development and instead replacing it with national or statewide land use policies. Without this, HSR will only lead to more sprawl. Philadelphia is already a bedroom community for some who work in New York. Pushing down travel times to Maryland or Albany will likely result in the suburban development of any virgin land in the immediate area.
