Amtrak go bye-bye?- A congressionally-chartered Amtrak Reform Council is recommending dismantling the government-subsidised passenger rail service. The report stated that "[t]he council believes that passenger rail service will never achieve its potential as provided and managed by Amtrak." Amtrak Chairman Michael Dukakis (I didn't know he surfaced there) retorted with "I think this report should be rejected out of hand.'' Well, Mike, the public rejected you out of hand 14 years ago; that's why you're heading Amtrak rather than working out of your presidential library in Cambridge.
