The world's worst argument for rail transportation

Having traveled around Europe, I enjoyed their trains and it would be nice to see something similar here in the US, but this argument, taken from an letter to the editor in the Seattle Times, takes the cake for a moronic argument.

Nationally, we put billions of dollars of taxpayer money into construction and support of air-travel infrastructure, while letting Amtrak die a slow death from neglect. (You can't fly a train into an office building — the money we're spending on the Iraq war could've bought us a very nice, national high-speed rail network.)

Has the writer ever heard of 3/11?
