Comments from a Passenger.

Hi Jim!

I am on the Capitol Limited this evening, sleeper service. The new food is a disaster.

I will be direct: The beef whatever is microwaved, burned on one side to the point of sticking to the plate, cold on the other. Tasteless, limp excuse for veggies and the salad is lettuce with one small tomato.

It’s bad. Every other diner agreed that the head of Amtrak made an error here. Fortunately I am on to Portland from Chicago so they have real food, two days on a train with this would be horrible.

It has nothing to do with millenials, it’s just a cheapy creapy way to cut service to the bone.

This new book by Jim Loomis is a quick and easy read, full of interesting information about Hawaii that most people don’t know and are surprised to learn:


• There were actually two attacks by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor during World War Two


• There were real cowboys working on ranches in Hawaii *before* there were cowboys in Texas.


• Outdoor advertising (billboards) has been illegal in Hawaii for 100 years.
