So check-in, waiting in line to be personally screened, and then picking up your baggage, you can shave off as much as an 45 minutes to an hour of your time just by going rail vs. plane.
Wow, you really are a central planner for the people instead of letting markets ( the people ) decide this.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
