My record for predicting the future, or at least having really awesome ideas, has been well-documented and irrefutable. And here's one more.
Years ago, I came up with the idea to have an international Summer Olympics, shared between Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, BC. In this grand concept, a high-speed train route would be built to link the three major cities of the Pacific Northwest.
Well, Vancouver is holding the 2010 Winter Olympics. And a high-speed train is slated to run between Eugene, Oregon and Vancouver, BC. So, maybe it wasn't dead on, but give me a break. I can't be right all the time.
Count me as a big fan of this high speed rail proposal.
