    The story of the reconstruction and addition to the train system in Israel is heroic and wonderful. Every time I go to Israel (twice a year) I make sure to spend a few days just riding the trains. Its the best, most relaxing way to get around, the other train riders are usually relaxed and pleasant. I love the Israel train experience. However, I really dislike the sick, synical attitude of the typical Haaretz writer. These people always sneer and are always looking for the negative in Israel. Well, there is nothing negative about the train system in Israel. Instead try writing about public transportation in Michigan, where I am from (it doesn't exist in any form), or the subway in NYC, where I currently live (this is true hell on earth). Its not just the trains, it seems that Israeli jounalists are always nasty, and sarcastic. I'd like to see an article on the poor standards of journalism in Israel. Journalism in Israel really sucks! The train system, however, is great!
