    Privatize it, I'm all for that, but who would take it over. Certainly not the host railroads, and I know of nobody foolish enough to do it, and if they did, to even break even would require fare levels no ordinary soul could afford. However, Romney's position is nothing compared to Perry. My guess is that the next pres. will be a Republican, might as well get used to that, but the worst of the worst is Perry, and then there is Romney. None of them are "good".
