This Guy Must Have Read my Twitter Rant!

Last month sometime, I went on a typing frenzy on Twitter and let off some steam about my disappointment regarding America’s rail infrastructure. The twitter rant can be summed in one sentence: U.S. rail infrastructure cannot hold a candle to rail systems in Europe and Asia. Which is sad and frustrating considering this country is supposed to be an developed country and the world’s leading superpower.

Anyways, I came across the following link on The Infrastructurist’s website. Brian Donahue of the Newark Star-Ledger goes on an awesome almost four minute tirade about how the country’s rail system is lacking. Donahue is specifically discussing New Jersey’s ARC Project, a recent project that will increase rail capacity in the New York City region, if it can get funded.
