    some more bullshit to deal w/ thanks to ASSama. fuckin guy.
    Senator John McCain of Arizona, one of Amtrak's harshest
    critics in
    Congress, has joined Senator Ernest Hollings of South
    Carolina in
    introducing legislation that would give Amtrak $1.77 billion
    over two years
    to improve safety and security.
    Section 2 of the Rail Security Act of 2001 would authorize
    $515 million for
    system-wide Amtrak security upgrades; $998 million for New
    York tunnel
    "life-safety" projects plus rehabilitation of tunnels in
    Baltimore and
    Washington; and $254 million to improve emergency
    accessibility to New York
    City's Penn Station, renovate the Thames and Niantic bridges
    in Connecticut,
    and continue installation of the ACSES (Advanced Civil Speed
    Enforcement
    System) in high speed territory.
    Other parts of the bill are directed at freight railroads.
    Section 3
    requires the U. S. DOT to review existing regulations "and
    identify
    potential revisions to improve rail safety and security."
    Section 4 orders the DOT Secretary to "assess the security
    risks associated
    with rail transportation and develop prioritized
    recommendations for
    improving the security of rail tunnels, rail bridges, rail
    switching areas,
    and other areas posing significant rail-related risks to
    public safety and
    the movement of interstate commerce." This section would
    require a report,
    due within 180 days, which would include recommendations for
    "federal
    financial, technological, or research and development
    assistance to
    railroads to improve security and reduce the likelihood of
    crime or
    terrorist attacks." :heated:

    its funny
    there was actually a possibility that amtrak was going to fold.
    the government was going to cut of amtrak funding, which it was supposed to do a long time ago, and with all the financial losses and acela not being the hit it was expected/supposed to, things were looking bleak for amtrak. of course when moneys tight you have to trim away at the non-essentials (aka: amtrak graf van squad). but because of the attack's ripple effect, the trickle down is that there is going to be a big push in security and patrols and it is going to make more shit tougher for us.
    :(

    ...better hope they don't invest in any night vision goggles.

    night vision is one thing...infrared is another...my dad brought an infrared scope home from work...i took it outside and turned it on and looked into the woods behind my house...i could see all sorts of wildlife that i didnt even know was there...pointing it back towards the house i could actually see the body heat from my dad, mom, and assorted appliances inside...shit was wild. my dad was telling me that the particular scope i was using, the MILSCOPE, was a 70,000 dollar unit...the only way to be invisible to IR is glass...IR cant see through glass...
