-need to give "guidance" for June meeting, with all these horrible factors occurring
-not to mention, the continued "tectonic market shifts" - as rates continue to rise, and it appears, as I suggested, to be due to Chinese Treasury selling (very ominous)

If you have ever traveled through the Springfield, Illinois area recently, you probably missed a great little railroad museum, just south of Springfield. The town of Chatham, Illinois has preserved their Chicago and Alton depot. The depot sits next to the Amtrak/UP line that runs from Chicago to St. Louis. The line is getting an upgrade to 110 mph for the higher speed program.
The museum is a great example of what can be done, when like minded people come together and preserve history.
