"Truth passes through three phases: 1) It is ridiculed. 2) It is violently opposed. 3) It is accepted as self-evident." Albert Schopenhouer. In the United States, rail is currently passing through Phase Two.

From the Cabalmaster:

We here at the Secret Worldwide Transit Cabal have it on good authority that the inimitable Vic Vreeland, webmaster of the flashy but forgettable “Railroading America” website, see is a sorehead. An FOC tells us that whenever anyone puts unfavorable commentary on the “Railroading America” guestbook, it soon disappears . . . as if by magic.


Was it something we said, Vic? (We’d heard he’s a hothead; sounds like he’s a sorehead, too.)

If we could stop snickering long enough . . . we’d admit that we LIKE “Railroading America” – just as it is!

(. . . we can just hear the mumbling out there in cyberland . . .”those characters have really gone off the deep end this time!”)

If we could stop snickering long enough . . . we’d explain why we LIKE “Railroading America” – just as it is!

Because . . . if The Secret Worldwide Transit Cabal set out to create a wicked parody of an anti-rail website . . . that no thinking person would take seriously after catching on . . . we’d have a tough time matching what Vic Vreeland has already accomplished with “Railroading America!”
