This Pensacola, Florida editorial is far from collectivism. Amtrak is not HSR, but it is still good transportation and much of Florida has been cut off since Amtrak “suspended” service after Katrina.
Do we need AMTRAK passenger service in Pensacola? We need it and I don’t see why we don’t have it. We have a practically new, modern terminal just sitting there, gathering dust and graffiti, to the east of 14th Avenue. Part of its parking lot is used by the nearby liquor store.
