Jack, I agree with Gary. Our comments were not at all directed at you.

Regarding the poles. They make good fences, enclusures for large outside planters. Hillholders for gardens on a slope, etc. That was the usage for the old railroad ties in the Germany in the 70's when those were replaced with concrete ties.

That would be another area of improvement the American railroad system would need. Modern trains like the TGV that go at 570Km/h cannot run on tracks from the civil war. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Layg7...eature=related

While there are many things that get updated in the U.S., some things aren't allowed to be updated due to people and companies who just don't want to change.

I think I'd look a little closer at regulations rather than the companies or the general population.

Some regulations, like electrical, get feedback form the power companies.

Also, it will take years to recover from Sandy. I've seen reports of complaints about no electricity. Some buildings, including power sub-stations no longer exist.

Here it is 7 years later and I can find building lots with nothing but a concrete slab on them due to Katrina.
