Now China is just making California–and the U.S. as a whole–just plain silly. Opening a high speed rail line from Shanghai to Guangzhou (the latter is Canton to the romanized)–the equivalent to going from Los Angeles to Seattle–is remarkable. The speed is brutally efficient. I can only hope I’ll get to ride on a bullet train sometime before I’m old and gray.
Like going from Angel City to Emerald City in 7 hours!
