Lowell (Jacob)

When I grew up trains were still part of life. My father traveled in his work and took trains all over the country. It wasn't until the 1950s when Pres. Eisenhower decided (along with Congress) to derail the trains in favor of interstate highways (this was also pushed by lobbyists for the auto industry and businesses the feed off the auto industry). It was, in my opinion, one of the worst decisions ever because of the impact it has had on our planet.

Did you know that GM and the truck industry bought up the many electric trams in many of the cities back about that same time; ripped up the tracks and installed gas-guzzling, smoke-spewing buses? Another bad decision.

And yes, Jacob is fine. It is my pen name and also an affiliated real name.

Nice to hear from you again!
