|Which way do I turn?|

Call me an optimist, but every time I'm near a place like this, I dream about a future of high-speed, efficient, affordable train travel and how it can revolutionize the way we live in an energy-constrained, time-obsessed world.
Probably won't happen in my lifetime, because we're instead stuck with politicians more focused on pulling down flags at city hall (shame on you, Rob Ford) or defending themselves from fraud allegations while wantonly wasting taxpayer money on their own self-interest (I'll reserve judgment, Joe Fontana, but thanks to Billy T and other missteps you're still never getting my vote.) They have no guts, no vision. And yet voters who can't be bothered to engage in the democratic process continue to blindly support them, which further dooms us to more of the same.
Still, it never costs anything to dream, right?
