I just hope and pray the NY Rangers can come back and win this Stanley Cup Final series with Los Angeles. LA is a very non passionate sports town (especially for hockey) and area unlike us folks in the Northeast Corridor like Phila, Pittsburgh, NY and Boston. We are passionate, intense, insane, live and die with our teams here in the Northeast Corridor. Would make me sick to my stomach to see another LA world title in pro sports, especially NHL. Half the dam fans at the games in LA are from New York!! If the Kings win the series it would be the 3rd Stanley Cup title for Southern California since 2007. Pathetic!!!

The sprawling Big Apple and the bustling city of New Haven come together in the exciting new NEC: New York-New Haven route for Train Simulator, featuring many of New York’s famous landmarks and advanced signalling throughout. Joining the USA’s most populated city, New York, to Connecticut’s second largest city, New Haven, the original line was completed in 1849; classic American steam trains were the first to use the line before it was electrified in the early 20th century. It also forms part of the longer Northeast Corridor, which runs from Boston to Washington D.C. The 75 mile (120km) route for Train Simulator features two of New York’s most famous train terminals, Grand Central Terminal and Penn Station, both within four blocks of each other but serving two different routes through The Big Apple. The stunning and imperious Grand Central Station in New York – once home to the great passenger trains of the New York Central - is Metro-North’s southernmost point of its Harlem Line.

Christie's love affair with MSNBC appears to be over. WItness this gem: "It was a match made in moderately minded Northeast Corridor heaven. Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey needed a TV network that would burnish his bipartisan bona fides and showcase his gleefully contrarian style. MSNBC craved a Republican who cut against the party grain and lit up the screen with his everyman-ish, Springsteen-loving spontaneity. An on-air romance blossomed, forged over chummy strolls along the Jersey Shore and heart-to-hearts in the studio about everything from overeating to education, embodying the aisle-crossing aspirations of this partisan era. Now, the improbable relationship between a governor with his eyes on the White House and a network determined to break into the top tier, up to now so beneficial to both, has curdled in a spectacularly public fashion.

Monmouth-Ocean-Middlesex (MOM)[edit] The Monmouth-Ocean-Middlesex (MOM)[16][17] line is a proposed south and central New Jersey commuter rail route to New Brunswick, Newark and New York's Penn Station. This would restore service previously provided by the Central Railroad of New Jersey. The line was originally proposed by the Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders in March 1980. It would run on a 40.1-mile rail corridor and would provide diesel commuter rail service from Monmouth Junction (South Brunswick), where the Jamesburg Branch partially joins the Northeast Corridor (NEC), south to Lakehurst in the interior of northern Ocean County. As of 2006, the line was opposed by Jamesburg and Monroe Township.[18] From Monmouth Junction the line would continue southeast to Jamesburg, Monroe, Englishtown, Manalapan, Freehold Borough, Freehold Township, Howell and Farmingdale. A new rail connection would be required in Farmingdale. It would proceed southward from Farmingdale to Lakehurst, passing through Howell ...

AMTRAK COVERS 88% OF OPERATING COSTS Federal capital investment supports future growth WASHINGTON – Amtrak President and CEO Joe Boardman told a Congressional committee today that America’s Railroad® is leveraging record ridership to reduce dependence on federal operating subsidies. He announced that in FY 2012 the federal government paid just 12 percent of Amtrak’s operating costs while Amtrak covered 88 percent with ticket sales and other revenue. Boardman explained that while the railroad has taken actions to chip away at operating costs and increase revenue, a vital component of its success has been the federal government’s willingness to invest in the Amtrak national network. Federal capital investment helps to reduce operating costs, supports the existing system, funds solutions to reduce future costs and provides the infrastructure and equipment to sustain ridership and revenue growth. “Previous federal capital investment levels have sufficed to keep the system going, but they are not go ...

Mixed Precipitation, Localized Flooding and Fog All Possible This Weekend Late Tonight - Saturday Morning Mainly rain was falling over central Iowa this evening with temperatures in the middle 30s. Precipitation will move in late tonight. A wintry mix is expected mainly north of the Interstate 94 corridor. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect Saturday morning for this area to account for the icing threat from sleet and freezing rain. Rain will be the dominant precipitation type outside of this area. A light glazing of ice is possible. Travel could be impacted. Saturday Afternoon - Evening Heavy rainfall, combined with snow melt, could lead to localized flooding, and possibly ice jams on area rivers. Dense fog is possible Saturday night. Late Saturday Night - Sunday Precipitation will change to light snow late Saturday night and Sunday. 1 to 3 inch accumulations are possible over parts of northeast Iowa, southeast Minnesota, and into north central Wisconsin. Less than a 1/2 inch of snow is expected else ...
Chief Meteorologist Chris Yates Forecast as of 6:00 PM on March 8th Tonight: Isolated rain/snow showers will be possible through 2 AM. After 2 AM, moderate to heavy snow will develop across the region. Temperatures will fall in to the 20s. Winds will shift to the northeast and will blow at 5-15 MPH. Saturday: Blizzard conditions will be widespread across the region as heavy snow continues with snowfall rates of 1-2 inches an hour expected, especially in the morning. By mid morning, winds will increase to 20-30 MPH with gusts up to 45 MPH expected. These winds combined with heavy snow will make travel nearly impossible through Saturday evening. Overnight, temperatures will fall in to the teens with snow quickly coming to an end by 8 PM. Snow Accumulations through Saturday Evening: The heaviest snow accumulations will be along the I-80 Corridor where 6-10 inches are expected.

My reflection on the Meaning “The country for Sell” Over the past years, I am struggling hard to understand a published report “the Country for Sell”. Indeed, this report was described by the government as untrue and was strongly rejected. After spending time to travel across the country, ranging from Koh Kong, Kg Speu, Kg Thom, Siem Reap, Preah Vihea, Rattanakiri, mundulkiri, Stoeung Treng, Kratie and Po Sat, Battambang and others, including my informal discussion with many people, I have eyewitnesses numerous stories and cases, where forests have now been designed as skin tiger pattern, the community forest is formed like an island trees surrounded by the plantations owned by either local business (tycoons) or international companies. Some places, big mountain areas have been prohibited for entry by villagers, and strongly fortified by armed guards, with Police, Military or Police Military uniform. The cases above have pushed me to think more about the report “Country for Sell”, whether this ...

The next winter storm is expected to move into Arizona this evening and then toward the Four Corners area by late tonight. The storm will then track across the Colorado and New Mexico Border Southern Colorado Saturday morning before moving into western Kansas by Saturday. Snow will develop in the mountains late this afternoon and evening, intensifying later tonight and then continuing through much of Saturday. On the plains, a mix of rain and snow will develop tonight changing to all snow late tonight along the Front Range and then across the eastern plains by early Saturday morning. Snowfall is expected to be heavy at times with snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour as the heaviest snow shifts from the foothills and Front Range Urban Corridor Saturday morning eastward across the plains Saturday afternoon and early evening. Strong winds will dangerous winter driving conditions across much of Northeast and North Central Colorado with this storm, with blizzard conditions likely east of I-25. Snow accumul ...

Status Update By Morgan County Sheriff's Office Well, here we go again, do I risk sounding like the broken record about snow that never really seems to materialize (or comes without warning)? My only concern about posting this would be to jinx the snow away.and we need it, BAD. Seriously though folks, if you have never experienced a real Eastern Colorado Plains blizzard, they can be more than hazardous. Besides risk of having your car stuck in a snowbank in whiteout conditions or loss of power for days, the wet snow and wind chills can create life-threatening conditions. And I'm really not crying wolf, just because the last few storms have not really turned into anything, we should still remain vigilant and prepared in case one not only do we get what the NWS says we could get, but if that "big L" decides to spend the night in the SE Colo/SW Kansas/Oklahoma panhandle, these storms can hang around for awhile. But for your Friday morning reading pleasure, here is the next Winter Storm WARNING, courtesy of o ...
Talk about spin! I can think of only 5 routes with at least a few miles of triple digit speeds: Boston - NY - DC on the Northeast Corridor, Philadelphia - Harrisburg on the Keystone Corridor, a small portion of the New York - Albany - Schenectady route on the Empire Corridor, a small portion of the Chicago - Detroit route, and as of a few weeks ago a small stretch of the Chicago - St Louis route. I guess more than half of Amtrak's trains run along one of those stretches for some portion of their journey. But in terms of miles or time spent above 100 mph, it's still a minimal percentage of the overall network. But still, it's progress...

Storm's Official Chase Forecasts for Friday and Saturday: Friday: Anticipate that supercellular development will commence around 22z along the dryline in the eastern TX Panhandle, in the vicinity of Turkey/Floydada, as the speed max overspreads the region. Per the 18z GFS, storms will mature in an environment of 1000-1200 j/kg of CAPE, SRH values of 200-250 m2/s2, and 50+ kts of bulk shear. The storms will have a large hail and damaging wind threat, and, should they root down into the boundary layer, would have tornadic potential, as well as the potential for an isolated strong tornado, as the LLJ ramps up. This threat would be greatest between 00z-03z along the US 287/US 62 corridor from Childress to Vernon to Altus. If supercells don't root down into the boundary layer and remain elevated, the tornado potential will obviously be significantly reduced. Saturday: As the surface low moves northeast across western Kansas, 18z runs of the NAM and the GFS indicate that it will intensify, drawing a plume of lo ...

I meant to talk about accumulations as well and forgot. 2-4 inches are possible across northeast PA and northern NJ. Maybe an inch just south of that area in the Lehigh Valley (eastern parts) and Route 78 corridor in NJ. Not much south of I-78. Again, a sharp cutoff is going to occur, so someone is going to lose out. Best guess would be the area close to 78.

Heaviest Snow Across Hills of Southern D-8 * Snow is now falling in the I-81 corridor of west-central VA, and in WV rain is now changing over to snow. These areas of precip will spread quickly into southern D-8 over the next few hours.arriving in Franklin county around midnight and expanding northeast across the rest of D-8 before dawn. As I have stressed, I expect the steadiest/heaviest snow to fall early on in this storm, especially over southwestern D-8 where most of the snowfall will occur before 2:00pm Wednesday. Temps and dew points look cold enough for all snow across most of D-8, except perhaps in Lancaster county where some rain may mix in at times Wednesday afternoon. Overall, this storm looks on track as forecast...

Ok; Here is an update on The Impending Nor'Easter: OVERVIEW: This slow moving storm will move into the area Wednesday Evening, from the South. Precipitation will break out across CT between 3PM & 8PM, from Southwest to Northeast. For Inland areas, mostly snow & sleet can be expected from this storm. Along the 95 Corridor & SE CT, some mixing is likely at times, holding down accumulations. Precipitation will last through The Day Thursday, before tapering off Around Midnight Thursday Night. Storm Specifics: Expect Periods of (On & Off) Snow, & Mixed Precipitation to last from Early Wednesday Evening, through Early Friday Morning. The Heaviest Precip. Will be Thursday Morning. The Thursday AM & PM Commutes do not look too good. Snow accumulations are still very uncertain, as it is still unknown whether or not the temperature will stay below 32 for the duration of the storm. This will greatly impact snowfall accumulations. At this point, as an EARLY Call, I am forecasting 6" to 10" for Most of CT, with 3" to ...
Boardman added that the Amtrak long distance trains are an important part of a larger national network connecting rural communities to larger cities and major urban areas. They serve passengers with disabilities, the elderly and rural populations that are losing scheduled intercity air and bus service. In fact, long distance trains bring one million riders a year to the Northeast Corridor. The link below is to the presentation by Amtrak's Boardman to the US House.
Amtrak President Joseph Boardman gave a passionate defense of the national train network and explained the urgent capital needs of the Northeast Corridor in testimony before the House T&I Committee's Railroads Subcommittee this morning. His comments are summarized in this Amtrak press release.

VERY light sprinkles and sleet are reaching the ground here at WTVR CBS 6 News.
**Winter Storm On The Way** A Major Winter Storm will affect everywhere from DC to Boston with a mixed bag of precipitation on Wednesday and Thursday. For our area rain mixing with and hanging to heavy wet snow looks to be the situation for most areas except far north and west which may start as a mix and go to all snow. Accumulations will range from 1 to 3 inches to 3 to 6 inches areawide. This forecast is very low confidence as being in March the sun angle makes the ground warmer and really hinders accumulation. That and being we start as rain it also hinders accumulation once we go to snow. A colder solution would up the snow totals and a warmer solution would make them significantly lower. It look like an area from approximately New Brunswick North can see 3 to 6 inches of heavy wet snow with south of there seeing 1 to 3. Places in PA such as Quakertown and Philly could also see 3 to 6 with the Philly-DC Corridor seeing as much as 6 to 12 Inches. Also in the northeast in the CT to Boston area ...

Another Winter Bang! Snow storm Midwest Tuesday, Mid Atlantic Wednesday, southeast New England possibly Wed. Night. Chicago 8-10 inches. They are 10 inches short of the normal to date snowfall. This can be made up in one storm. Washington DC finally snow. But remember, this system starts mix or even rain from late Tuesday into Tuesday night before storm intensifies. New GFS farther north with precipitation and a little warmer around DC. NAM is now colder for DC. European, which is still old, is farther south with less precipitation for DC. A corridor slicing from Northeast Maryland through DC area to western Virginia can have 6-12 inches. South Jersey into Southeast New England can also get hit hard, but hard to say this point on specifics for this area. After this storm, watch severe weather threat east Texas next Sunday late and lower Mississippi Valley Monday. Big upper trough comes out of Southwest. Looks like news story severe weather event. There can be several tornadoes with this system. Stay tune ...

Productive use of a cold, snowy winter evening? Let's read the 42 page "Amtrak Vision for the Northeast Corridor - 2012 Update Report"

Midwest | - Winter Storm Saturn targets the region early week. - On Monday, snow is likely across northern and eastern North Dakota, northeast South Dakota, Minnesota (except the northeast corner) and northern and eastern Iowa. Accumulations may top a foot in Fargo and 6 inches in Minneapolis. - Meanwhile, a few showers are possible from the central Plains into the Ohio Valley. - Strong north-to-northwest winds are likely across the Plains. - Daytime temperatures Monday will vary from near average to 10 degrees below average. - Lows will range from the single digits in northern Minnesota to the 20s in the Ohio Valley and the 30s in the central Plains and Missouri. - Highs will range from the 20s and low 30s north to the 40s south. - By Tuesday, the snow shifts into much of Wisconsin, southern Michigan, northern Illinois, northern Indiana and northern Ohio. Milwaukee and Chicago could easily accumulate well over 6 inches of snow. The showers will gradually change to snow in the Ohio Valley. Light snow ling ...
The models currently have the most snow falling west of the I-95 corridor along and east of the Appalachians in Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia. The storm will hit Tuesday into Wednesday. All it will take is a small jog to the east to bring the ~foot snow totals right into the DC Metro area. Even if this happens, it won't be the end of the world or anything like what New England saw a few weeks ago. It'll still be the most snow DC has seen since 2010, and it'll screw things up for a few days, but it given that temperatures will mostly stay above freezing near DC, the angle of the sun is higher than it would be in the dead of winter, and the snow will be wet and more susceptible to melting, it shouldn't cripple the area for days upon days upon days. Of course, having grown up in Woodbridge (in NoVA just south of DC), I know how people up there handle snow. Flurries close schools for two days and cause a 120 car pileup on the Beltway. All you can do is take it easy and try to avoid the *** if you c .. ...
Being an "east sider" I appreciate the Mayors efforts with regards to this corridor. He is correct it has never looked better. A couple other business's to visit would be Jose Maria's mexican Restaurant (One of the best in the city) and Gregs shoe repair. Also, check out Sunrise Dental, Me and Dads Toys, Lou's used jeeps and car service as well as Interiors by Issac's. Issac's carries all sorts of antique furniture and do an excellent job of repairing damage furniture. They fixed one of our cushions that our dog Dylan ate. (my profile pic) Bad dog. The development of Settlers Hill will have a potentially huge impact on the east side and the city in general. Development opportunity exist on the southwest corner of State and Kirk as well as the northeast corner. The Mayor seems to have his eye on the ball and I appreciate his attention to the east side. It's actually quite charming and I'm hopeful that a few other business will see the potential. A coffee house with live music would be nice and I think a ba ...
For anyone who is wondering the 00z gfs continues to trend N again...those in SE VA and NC, better hope its wrong or your snowfall hopes will be narrowing...Meanwhile this continues to look all the better for the snow-starved corridor from DC-Philly.More updates coming.
The back edge of the clouds is rapidily approaching the I-55 corridor in central Mississippi. Should be nearing the state line by Midnight, and then the I-65 corridor in central Alabama by 4 AM, before leaving the state by 9 AM in the far east. Flurries should begin to end from west to east across the state between 9 pm and Midnight. No accumulation is expected.
Weatherwise, things will stay quiet until the middle of next week. A possible storm is starting to get a lot of attention. Looks like a rain or thunderstorm maker for the Southeast, but further north is where things could get interesting. Cold air will be in place ahead of the storm in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. One question is how strong will the storm be? Another one is how strong will the blocking pattern be? Blocking is needed to allow the jet stream to buckle and slow down, giving the storm time to intensify. Too much blocking, however, keeps the storm supressed. That means the fun stops at Delmarva... a scenario current computer model guidance is depicting. However, models often over-estimate the strength of blocking in this timeframe, and the area of high pressure north of the storm is projected to be around 1032 mb (notable, but not overly impressive). In other words, I'm not buying the out-to-sea scenario just yet, but it's still too soon to call a major snowstorm for the big cities of the I ...

Another Rant: I have to say that when weather events happen, especially here, it is much to my dismay and annoyance to immediately hear "why do you people in the Northeast have to be such babies - We get hurricanes here and are prepared, or we get heatwaves here and you don't hear anything about us complaining, quit complaining". First of all, try opening your mind up to something other than the Actual Weather, and think about the region that is being effected. How densely populated is your area? You live in Tampa? 2,960 people per square mile...Atlanta? 3,154; Miami? 11,000 Jacksonville? 1,100. Memphis? 2,543. New Orleans? 2,000. Charlotte? 2,457. Houston? 3,500. Dallas? 3,518. Compare that to the Northeast Corridor...New York? 27,000. Jersey City? 16,737. Boston? 12,793. Newark? 11,458. Do you have any idea how much more difficult it is to deal with any weather event when you have cities with people who are stacked up on one another versus others which are spread out? This does ...
.This was not written by me. Amtrak Called ‘Symbol of Government Waste’The federal government is going down the wrong track by continuing to subsidize an inefficient Amtrak rail service, an economist asserts.The bad news: Amtrak posted a loss of $361 million last year.The “good” news: That was the smallest operating loss for Amtrak since 1975, thanks to increased ridership in the Northeast Corridor.“Amtrak has never been profitable. From its outset in 1971, it has been backed by taxpayers with billions of dollars in direct aid and loans," writes Daniel Hanson, an economics researcher with the American Enterprise Institute, in an Op-Ed piece for The Washington Examiner.“Over the past three years alone, Amtrak has received more than $4.4 billion in federal aid, and it still was not able to finish any of those years in the black.”Tickets for trains running in the Northeast Corridor taking riders from Washington, D.C., to Boston cost about $150 — little more than a $125 ticket in 1997 — but ...

Most Valuable National Union: Amalgamated Transit Union : With their Occupy Transit T-shirts and aggressively progressive approach to fighting for local and regional services, the 190,000 members of ATU are a force to be reckoned with in debates about economic and social justice. They gave critical early support to the Occupy movement, embracing its spirit with the declaration that “public transportation is a human right.” “Occupy understands that the transit system that took a century to build is threatened by the 1 percent, who want all of the financial benefits but none of the financial responsibilities of a civilized society,” ATU president Larry Hanley explained at the launch of 2012’s National Day of Action for Public Transportation. After Superstorm Sandy devastated public transit in the Northeast Corridor, Hanley made the right connections. “Ultimately, who should pay is the oil companies,” he told the most valuable StreetsBlog.org. “They’re the people who are polluting the envi ...

Information regarding the impending weather tomorrow/Thursday. As the forecast suggests it appears that we will be missing the brunt of the storm. It looks like the heaviest snow will set up Southeast of a Denison to Fort Dodge to Mason City line. The storm will move east/northeast and snowfall along the central Iowa corridor (Atlantic to Des Moines to Tama) will be in the 5 to 8 inch range with a potential of a foot in areas. In our area (northern tiers of Iowa) we might see about 4 inches of snow. The real problem will come with the winds. In the heaviest snowfall areas they will quickly be at or approaching blizzard or near blizzard conditions. Our area will still see high winds (25-35 sustained with gusts to 45) and with even the smaller amount of snow, visibility and travel will still be an issue. Temperatures will be moderate however with lows around 15 and highs around 20 to 25. Timing will likely be after 3ish tomorrow and continue into Thursday around noon. Keep a good eye on the weather conditio ...

At the *** end of its tenure, the BJP government approved the much-touted Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) peripheral ring road (PRR) phase-1project on Monday. The cabinet meeting gave the goahead for the Rs 1,028-crore phase-1 PRR after deliberations. Said to be one of the biggest infrastructure projects after Metro Rail in Bangalore, the 65-km phase-1 PRR project will be concentrated in the northeast of Bangalore starting from Tumkur Road to Hosur Road via Bellary Road and Old Madras Road. In order to relieve traffic on the ORR and major road networks of the city, PRR of 65-km at a radial distance of between 10km and 17km from the existing ORR has been taken up. In view of future traffic increase and more densified development around the city, 100-metre wide corridor will be developed on the PRR.

As we head into Monday, get ready for a reality check that even though it doesn't feel like it, the calendar still says December. Our forecast temperature map for Monday illustrates the big change coming with highs in the 40s and 50s plunging into cities such as Houston, Texas, Little Rock, Ark. and Memphis, Tenn. This is a drop of more than 20 degrees from the highs over the weekend. Monday's Highs Meanwhile, milder air will surge northward into the Northeast I-95 corridor. Some cities in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, including Washington D.C., will flirt with record highs on Monday. That said, it will not be an enjoyable sunny day since a cold front will bring rain and cloud cover into the region. By Tuesday, much of the warmth will be erased in the South and Northeast with temperatures returning to levels more typical of December.
A strong cold front continues to push towards the TN Valley. In its advance, very warm December temperatures continue. It is also moist and this will lead to eventual thunderstorm development across southern-middle Tennessee and northern Alabama. Thunderstorms have already begun to develop across the lower Mississippi Valley and western Ohio Valley. As the front continues to progress eastward, these storms will increase in coverage and strength and also begin to shift eastward. A few of the storms will become severe with strong damaging winds and hail. The line of storms will begin to arrive into the western TN Valley around Midnight but it will be weakening. The threat for a few of these initial storms to remain severe with the damaging winds and hail will exist. The highest likelihood for severe weather will be for Wayne, Lawrence and Giles Counties in Tennessee and Lauderdale, Colbert and Franklin Counties in Alabama. Additional storms are likely to regenerate closer to the front. The front will begin ...

The trip to western Placer County went great. The message from Chris Conard follows: Folks, On our Placer Hotspots trip on Saturday, Dec 8th, we had several nice finds and a good group (24 total), with participants from the Bay Area, as far away in the Valley as Bakersfield, and even one from Illinois. Perhaps the most notable bird was a sapsucker that Bruce Webb found on an earlier visit. It looked very much like a Red-naped Sapsucker (Sami LaRocca may have gotten some helpful photos), but the bird was extremely active, and most looks were brief or distant, so definitive looks weren't obtained as far as I know. This bird was at McBean Park at 2nd and D St in Lincoln. We parked by the left-center field fence. The bird was seen along the riparian corridor from the small skateboard area to the northeast as far as you can walk along the shelf above the creek. Most of the sightings were about 350 feet northeast from the parking and skateboard area, but it was last seen very near the skateboard site. Other hi ...

For example, one company has so far shipped more than 1,000 truckloads of bottled water to New York and New Jersey. Another member company has provided retailers and FEMA over 40 million bottles of water to those affected by the storm. Additionally, through AmeriCares, bottled water has been distributed to The Salvation Army for Nassau County, the Food Bank for New York City, and Vermont food banks to help residents affected by the storm. Another IBWA member company has already distributed nearly 3,000 cases of bottled water to New York City food banks and the International Orthodox Christian Charities.

$100 Billion in Emergency Funds in 2009 were awarded to FEMA.In 2011 FEMA funds were drastically reduced to $10 Billion, mostly due to partisan wrangling in the House of Representatives. with GOP members standing firm on the cuts. Now, because of Hurricane Sandy's destruction, FEMA doesn't have a budget right-sized for the scale of the disaster. Charitable organizations and the generous hearted people of the Northeast Corridor will need to mount a response or the clean up will be prolonged. The resources are simply not there otherwise.
Because for a true picture of the United States economy, ride the train from New York to Washington and take a good, hard look out the window.
