New Orleans to Hammond Louisiana in real time. Best way to view it is to open it up in a separate window, keep the sound on, and pay attention when the speed kicks in.  Don’t miss the “Lac Pontchartrain” bridge. From the comments:

“At least 70% of America’s railroads still use wooden cross ties, but can certainly do higher speeds even so. The reason for the slow speed across Lake Ponchartrain is the fact that if there is a derailment, the chances are less that the train will end up in the drink. The train’s maximum speed in this video – given the schedule of 73 Miles in 60 Minutes – is 79 MPH, with the average speed of 72 MPH.”

For those who thought I was gonna post an Arlo Guthrie tune, you’re out of luck. I posted Steve Goodman because he wrote it especially for those of us who still ride the rails on The Overnight Open Thread.

    I thought you might like that. The original has lyrics but this particular guitarist

    I doubt it. But why shouldn’t he? It was supposed to be a pension scheme. He paid in, why shouldn’t he take out? I don’t see that the fact that he is fabulously rich (or liberal) has anything to do with that. A contract is a contract.

    I agree that a contract is a contract.I am worried that many such contracts will be violated. Warren Buffet is entitled to everything he is owed.I am concerned about people like me and possibly you (I don’t know) who depend on the system to remain solvent until such time as there can be real reform.

    Background Checks Needed For Members of Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns

    Started by Mayor Bloomberg in 2006, Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a coalition of over 800 mostly Democrat Mayors in all states except Alaska, Montana, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Wyoming.

    Since pretty much everyone is against illegal guns, the group would more accurately be called, Mayors For Gun Control.

    Bloomberg may want to consider background checks on these pro gun-control Mayors before they are accepted into the group, because the reckless and criminal behavior of some of the members is not helping their cause, from a PR standpoint.

    The Washington Free Beacon recently reported that some current and former members of the group have been charged with crimes as serious as felony corruption, assault of a police officer, and child sex crimes.

    Just last week, MAIG member and Gainsville, FL Democrat Mayor Craig Lowe was arrested on charges of driving under the influence and property damage after police found him asleep in his car at the scene of a crash.

    What’s wrong with this statement??
    Fusion center director: We don’t spy on Americans, just anti-government Americans

    Law enforcement intelligence-processing fusion centers have long come under attack for spying on Americans. The Arkansas director wanted to clarify the truth: centers only spies on some Americans – those who appear to be a threat to the government.

    In trying to clear up the ‘misconceptions’ about the conduct of fusion centers, Arkansas State Fusion Center Director Richard Davis simply confirmed Americans’ fears: the center does in fact spy on Americans – but only on those who are suspected to be ‘anti-government’.

    Sure I’m paranoid, but am I paranoid enough??

    Actually, I believe the Demo☭rats and Today’s Republicans will coalesce into another Demo☭rat-Republican Party, with thew new party stepping to represent the TRUE Conservatives. What to name that party is another subject for debate.

    Lack of real Party Discipline has always been a problem with the GOP. Purging the RINOs is long over due and it may already be too late to save the party’s brand.

    I don’t understand this continual concentration on old-fashioned technology (other than mechanical watches, revolvers, lever guns and manual transmissions for cars, I mean) — Nylon or, better yet, polypropelene rope will work just fine.

    It’s just more fun to say ‘Stout Hemp Rope’ rather then ‘durable
    polypropelene line’ something like ‘tough nylon cord’ comes close, but is still lacking… :wink:

    there is a fine line between strangling, hanging properly, and ripping someone’s head off. hanging is a science.

    it has to do with height, weight, and rope flex.

    SHR has the right flex.

    snapping heads off is in very bad form.

    scimitars and guillotine are for separating heads from bodies.

    SHR makes sure you do the job right, the first time with no mess (added bonus)

    lecture is up as well all y’all / yinz / youse
