Amtrak was awarded $450 million Monday for major improvements that will make Philadelphia-to-New York trains the fastest in the country.

So the overpriced Acela train full of businessjerks will be 10 minutes faster. Awwwwesome. The one good part is that it seems like the upgrades are specifically aimed at getting through central Jersey a lot faster, which is something we can all agree is for the greater good.

Awesome! I wish that money made regular trains faster, OR Acela trains more affordable.

On a side note, I am taking an 8:30am Bolt Bus on Saturday to NYC. Someone call to wake me?

You need a wake-up call for an 8:30 bus?! There are college freshmen already up at that hour. Okay, not many, but some. And you're like, 5 minutes from Bolt's stop...

FINE.

Well I'm just being cautious. I usually can get up early...unless I have to, whereupon I oversleep.

One time I rode the Acela from NYC to Philly and I was sitting near Wallace Shaun and I told him for an hour how much I love him.
