Why not start upgrading the track to run at 150 mph in segments and speed up the trip?

Because Amtrak is a corporate welfare basket case that will never come close to justifying itself economically. We have aircraft now. Passenger rail is for short-distance commuting, and it's barely cost effective at that.

If done correctly, high speed rail could work on the west coast.

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

This is what you get when you put women in tech.

WRONG.

This is what you get when you hire someone for no other reason than their sex. There are many women I know who do a fine job running companies and groups within companies, and what they have in common is that they spend more time doing their jobs than seeking publicity.
