Train Travel.

It is a treasured custom for Portlanders to criticize The Oregonian harshly. Today, however, the editorial writer both pleased The Doser with an opinion but also stated it elegantly. On the issue of President Barack O'Bama's plan to build a usable passenger rail system in the US, the writer concluded: "Obama's rail investment is a welcome step. However, as long as the United States insists on being the land of cheap gas and low taxes, it will continue to be the land of congested freeways and plodding passenger trains." Yep. (The Doser's criticism: It will be a day or so before The Oregonian will post its editorial of the morning.)
