Well, maybe not trains. I’m pretty disappointed that Christie is killing the Hudson Tunnel Project, but then again, I’m not from New Jersey. I can only try to sympathize from a distance, and without as much context as I’d like.
Still, I can’t imagine that this will be very good for the Garden State’s economic prospects, especially given how much of the money was coming from the federal government and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. I understand that Jersey is hurting financially, but sometimes you have to spend money to make money. Sometimes not spending money – not investing that money – means you lose big in the long run.
