Berlin to Baghdad

Cedar Rapids to Iowa City“The railway from Berlin-Vienna-Constantinople led through Belgrade, Nish and Sofia. The control of Servia, as of Bulgaria, was, therefore, essential to Germany for carrying out the Hamburg to Baghdad project, the very core of Pan-Germanism.”

“But what about that idea of a Cedar Rapids-Iowa City rail line? It would give the thousands of people who commute daily on Interstate 380 another option and possibly ease congestion on the crowded roadway.

It also would provide a boost to public transportation, the environmental movement and the Creative Corridor initiative calling for more regionalism.”

Studies and just a cursory observation show that restoring passenger rail service between Cedar Rapids currently makes no economic sense. Still, those crying for a Corridor Empire and their Forth Estate friends dredge up once more what should be a non issue.”Unified government in the Cedar Rapids-Iowa City Corridor has been discussed at various times, most recently by Pat Baird, former president and CEO of AEGON USA (now Transamerica).

Baird, who facilitated a November meeting of  Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance and the Iowa City Area Development Group investors, said unified regional government models should be explored. The backers met to discuss issues involving the two economic-development groups working better together.”

The Counts and no counts of Cedar Rapids Downtown District royalty have made no secret of their plans. An empire of “regionalism” with Cedar Rapids Downtown District as its imperial capital is what they hope to command.
A money losing Lionel layout is not wasteful. Money pursuing their imperial ambitions is never wasted, as long as it is not theirs.Empty trains and even more are what the great mass of unwashed taxpayers must pay for. One stop shopping for all their Tax Increment Funding treasure hunts and assorted tax abatement ordinances demands a larger empire to exploit.

Be prepared to confront the Cedar Rapids Downtown Districts race for new colonies. If not, be prepared to be tied to the tracks.

    Unified corridor Government(s) Ms. Vernon would not be happy … would that mean the end of one City/region cannibalizing from another. Remember she said we can’t worry about cannibalizing from other communities we have to worry about ourselves. (paraphrased)

      The express safe in the baggage car will carry treasure only one way, into Downtown Cedar Rapids. I wanna be Congresswoman Monica Vernon and her friends will be happy.
      Once unity is achieved, you may no longer call it cannibalism.
