Frankly, I don't see many places west of the Mississippi where HSR makes sense except Texas and California.. and even California is iffy. I guess a KC to St Louis run might be feasible... probably not though.
I live in the midwest and travel on plane for business about 1-2 times a month. Because most midwest locations are point-to-point and not hub destinations, it's an unbelievable waste of time and energy because you always have 1-2 hub transfers and hubs like O'Hare and Midway have become an absolute nightmare.

If you're a business, time is money. And every minute you waste without wifi, in a security line, in a transfer line, or even tired from the inconvenience is money businesses can gain back in massive chunks if HSR gets installed. It is a huge enabler for businesses, especially multi-location businesses. This isn't just for leisure and tourism. This is a great enabler for businesses. Businesses would be able to travel at a significantly lower cost.
