None Of The Above

“The history of transportation shows that we adopt new technologies when they are faster, more convenient, and less expensive than the technologies they replace. High-speed rail is slower than flying, less convenient than driving, and far more expensive than either one. As a result, it will never serve more than a few marginal travelers.”
USA Today

We won't adopt high-speed rail, but the politicians will make damned sure we pay for it anyway.
