Revive the CCC as the CCR

-A A +A

 John Bartlit’s Sunday editorial about reviving the Civil Conservation Corps was right on!
I had already written to President Barack Obama about hiring workers on the railroads, suggesting it be called the Civil Conservation of Railways.
Super fast trains for the East get all the attention, but we need to repair the rail lines in New Mexico, Kansas and Colorado this year, or the Southwest Chief will be re-routed south, eliminating passenger service to several towns in Kansas, and Colorado, including Raton, Las Vegas, and Lamy in New Mexico. We don’t want to drive all the way to Albuquerque to get the train to California, or Chicago and Santa Fe will lose the Lamy access.
