(The following appeared on the Abilene Reporter-News website on February 12, 2011.)

ABILENE, Texas President Barack Obama wants to spend $53 billion in a six-year program to help build a high-speed rail network, with an ultimate goal of giving 80 percent of Americans access to such within 25 years.
