re: The fact that we have a "Bureau of Land Management"... - Quidam65

re: Small Western towns to lose Amtrak service - Quidam65
I think we're in general agreement. But viable =/= profitable. One can make $0.01 on $10 billion, and technically one has made a profit. But most businesses aren't going to do that on a long-term basis, when they can invest their capital in other areas....
