"You want to keep the city of Milwaukee in the dark ages," said Rep. Pedro Colon, D-Milwaukee, to Republicans who criticized the rail proposals.
LOL, he may as well have said, "You guys are poopy heads...."
But seriously, I live in Pleasant Prairie and work in Downtown Milwaukee. I would love to use a train that could save me gas and money, where I could relax and read or blog. So why not modify the Amtrak for that? All we need to do that is to have the current Amtrak stop in PP or Kenosha. I bet me, my dad, and a couple buddies could build a train station for a cool $10M to $20million or about 10% of what the KRM would cost.
I just don't get why we don't just make the Amtrak stop out by the PP Rec Plex or thereabouts. Seems like a low cost solution that solves the problem.
But I must obviously be missing something.
