All Aboard! A Selection from Jim Loomis’ Book

Sophie Tucker once said, “I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor…and rich is better.” With apologies to the late Miss Tucker, in my many travels I’ve been comfortable and I’ve been uncomfortable…and comfortable is better. A lot better.¬† In a nutshell, that’s why I take the train.

There are many societal and environmental reasons for being pro-rail,…but for long-distance travel, the train is the only civilized option left for us.

It’s 3:45 p.m. on this Aloha Friday, and the Honolulu Advertiser’s traffic twitter feed has already posted six motor vehicle collisions around town – not necessarily the best way to start the weekend. Simply, elevated rail transit provides comfort in the security and safety of separating from at-grade motor vehicle traffic. Stay civilized, support the city’s rail project.
