Am I the only one who take's issue with HIM's logic that, "While some may find cheating morally reprehensible, it is not so morally reprehensible in this country that there are laws prohibiting it (anymore)—it's not even a misdemeanor." What is legal and what is moral are two very different things and I would never aspire to live in a country that mandates morality through laws. Of course the hackers would love to do just that so curious that HIM would subscribe to that logic..

@4 many tech companies discount/fund early adopters of their product in new markets as a necessary investment to get the mainstream market the case study/proof point they require.
I also think summarizing this as something that would only benefit the 'washington elite' is asinine
- DC to NYC corridor is the most densely populated and profitable route for Amtrak which currently subsidizes all others
- Our train system is archaic, inefficient and an embarrassment
- Ideally high-speeed train adoption would be managed competently within Amtrak but as that has proven to be a challenge due to a variety of reasons, any external push is welcome motivation

@16 somehow I doubt if PSBS were free and everywhere that you would take advantage of it. In NYC most the people do the annual membership vs day/short trip option. And for me personally dodging traffic, potholes and opening doors is 1/2 the fun and the sport of it all. If you're only looking for the serene country road tour or off the beaten trail mt biking than no city bike program anywhere will be your cup of tea. Disclaimer- I haven't used the NYC bike share as I have my own bike
