Amtrak already has a list of projects to fund if it gets the billions it expects from a big infrastructure bill. And some of its proposals can be put into effect rapidly, which is a big change from many other infrastructure proposals.

Stuck at home, reduced to virtual armchair travel, I've been musing about lessons learned on past trips-- like the days we spent fishing last summer in Alaska. My skepticism is understandable since, after a day and a half of fishing for salmon on the famous Kenai River in Alaska, before we got to Homer, we didn't catch any keepers.
