Our weekly look at News and Politics. I am no longer surprised at how often the two subjects become meshed. The Amtrak crash certainly brought this to the forefront. I rather liked John Boehners comment about Amtrak has bags on money but prefers to sudsidize food service rather than improve safety systems. I'll bet he would not be saying that had he been a passenger.
Jeb bush and Iraq. Exactly how many positions can he have on the subject?
ISIS takes Ramadi. Is it time to do something about the Caliphate? but who? There seem to be few countries in the region that want to take the lead. And there is little interest in entering into the battle from the west.
The American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation's the Let's Talk Trains Show visits with an old friend this week, Amtrak Media Relations Manager, Marc Magliari. After Marc brings us up to track speed, we will visit with the Twin City Model Railroad Museum.

Never let a tragedy go unexploited. That should be the DNC official slogan. As people were still being brought into the morgue from the Amtrak train wreck Democrat lawmakers were bleating in congress that it was the fault of the Republicans and not enough funding. Never mind that the train was going twice the speed limit on the curve at the time of the wreck. Meanwhile in what will be claimed as a rousing success half of the attendees at the big Gulf Summit at Camp David are no-shows. Finally Obama has let the dollar slide and debt rise to the point that the ChiComs want to dump the dollar as an international currency.
