Bullet Train Dream Still Remains Popular, If Not Likely To Happen
When we wrote earlier this week about a Japanese executive giving a presentation about abullet train between Houston and Dallas
, we really didn't think much of it. They've been talking about this pipe dream for years, so what was one more meeting about it?
But it seems to have sparked more than the usual interest on the web. Our sister blog Unfair Park went and got the PowerPoint from the presentation, embedded above, and CultureMap went into some length talking about the deal.
So bullet-train fans, immerse yourself in all the details you want through the links.

But don't get your hopes up. You're not going to see a bullet train in Texas for a long, long time, is our humble opinion. If ever.
You will, however, see plenty more meetings and studies about it.
