OK, in the spirit of "Living Car Free" I'm looking for ideas on actual solutions here.
The problem is this:
Currently there are no high speed trains in the united states. There are numerous "hurdles" to bringing it here (e.g. for boston-nyc-d.c. travel), ranging from politicians, financing, etc.
So the question is: what things do you think could be done to actually make it happen?
Not looking for the usual, "this will never happen, we're too corrupt/screwed-up, etc." Just ideas for solutions. They can be anything. Creating a website, calling/writing congressmen, calling the news station, looking to VC help, whatever.
