Vice President Joe Biden entered the realm of HSR politics in a visit to Houston and Dallas to promote the rail linkage of Texas' top two cities in population. Now, Fort Worth Mayor Price was on hand, I guess, to gently nudge HSR promoters to include our city in their plans. Note that, in the S-T article below, Dallas Mayor Rawlings seemed to agree that--eventually--Fort Worth should be included.
I think back on my earlier thoughts on the subject, including the fact that long-term regional transit planners recognized that Fort Worth and Dallas are separate and distinct way stops when they developed the I-35W and I-35E scheme. The same transit geographical and marketing logic should apply to HSR, in my opinion.
