I'll come right out and say it: I think the notion of ripping up an existing set of train tracks that connects the Tri-Lakes area with the outside world and the Amtrak network is as stupid as it is shortsighted. Now that I've ticked off a bunch of people who I'd like to think of as friends, I'll backtrack and say that I also believe that a bike trail through the Adirondacks is a great idea that will yield a good economic return. Even if it cost more than it returned in dollars and cents, it's a great idea.
