Berg Backs North Coast Rail
Not Patty Berg. Sid Berg, one of our local union guys.
You have to give the rail supporters credit for their never say die attitude, but I suppose it shouldn't come as any surprise Sid would support getting the rail lines up and running again. It would be beneficial both to him and at least some of his union members if work on rail restoration actually took place.
It's kind of like Sid equating getting the rail lines up and running to the project to land a man on the moon back in the sixties. Yep, it worked. I'm sure we can even count on some technology gains as a result of that project, although I'm not sure the lunar project got our economy going as Berg suggests.
Truth be told, I suspect that those who gained the most as a result of our landing on the moon were the ones who were working on it, just as it seems will be the case if the railroad restoration project finally comes to pass.
Still, nice to see yet another person come forward and challenge what seems to be the majority opinion around here.
