1. Improving the Northeast Corridor generally.
2. Addressing climate change.
3. Addressing poverty.
4. Addressing immigration.
5. Addressing ISIS and Russia.

Once he’s fixed those things, then he can focus on smaller items.

So, a list of impossible tasks for a single representative to accomplish.
Do you have any evidence that Boyle's very limited involvement in this issue has in any way negatively impacted his ability to contribute on any other issues?

I like the sign, others like the sign, if it goes to a railway museum, I will not see it. I’d rather fund Amtrak at the level that allows them to fix the sign.

That Amtrak can’t manage to fix a sign says more about how well we find Amtrak than it does about anything else.

I think we've exhausted the topic, so I'm going to let it end here. Or, let's put it this way, we're going 'round and 'round. And honestly, I don't have time to spend on the drama.

I do have some observations before letting this topic die:

1. We have a friend/foe feature here. I've never used it and as admin wouldn't, but I'm told it works. If you feel like someone is hounding you, you can use that feature. I believe you click on their name, go to the profile, and do it there. After that I believe their posts are hidden from you, and vice-versa.
2. You can ignore the person, and not take the bait. There's so much crap on the internet, you can scroll past in seconds...
3. You can report it using the report function. If we find it abusive, we'll take appropriate action, up to and including suspension and ban.
