This article does a good job of pointing out that there are other departments and agencies that are forced to suffer a similar level of partisan abuse and budgetary lunacy as Amtrak. It's kind of amazing to realize that Amtrak is probably closer to the norm than the exception. Just imagine what could be accomplished with multiyear budgets that weren't held hostage to annual threats and grandstanding.

We've got provisions and lots of beer. The key word is survival on the new frontier.
