Let me say I really love the idea floated by Georgia officials of building a high-speed train system throughout the southeastern states that would connect such cities as Atlanta; Jacksonville, Florida; Birmingham, Alabama and – yes – Louisville.
But let me also say I'll believe it when I see it.
According to a consultant's study, the proposal would be economically feasible. But I'm afraid those Georgia consultants have never dealt with Kentucky before.
By the time all our state and local officials – and advocacy groups -- are through putting their fingerprints all over the plan, costs will have risen about four thousand per cent, sixteen separate tunnels will be required in order to preserve allegedly historic properties and the completion date will be moved back to September 2093.
Which may still be sooner than the new Ohio River bridges open.
High-speed rail is an idea that's already become the norm in many other areas of the world, and it has the potential to provide a real economic stimulus to a region of the United States that could definitely use one. But "high-speed" isn't exactly a concept that seems to be embraced by very many of the power brokers here in the Bluegrass State.
I appreciate the Atlanta planners including Louisville in their ambitious plan. And I wish them well with it.
