More Stupid Ideas

Among the stupid ideas of the Creeping Security State has been that Amtrak should have "no ride" lists analogous to the "no fly" lists. Progressive Railroading has put up an poll about whether you think there should be no-ride lists, but I'm not certain if it's visible to non-subscribers. I'm disappointed that anyone would vote yes on this poll, particularly as it's aimed at professionals in the rail-transportation field who, one would think, would know better.
