By the time the last soldier comes home from Iraq, we can expect the first bullet train to be running from LA-NY, which actually means it will actually happen, but by that time, we will have personal helicopters taking us to super markets.
Well,at least it will begin and end here in the San Mateo "jet rich"community, home of the next costly idea that serves but the few. By then, those who have survived earthquakes in their houses with cement bunkers, may be getting dotty from having had to eat Spam.
The government announced it "will be looking into it"(the Bullet Train) on 60 Minutes which means they have been thinking about it since we lost our auto and airline industries. One opinionator already said something like "Hell, I don't like trains".
So for those of you who don't get it, our future has been laid out for us.
