Speak your mind about the bullet train

Much a-do has been made over the proposed high speed rail from Dallas to Houston. An anticipated crowd of 400 was to have attended Tuesday’s night’s meeting at Ennis High School. The Ennis News welcomes comments about the meeting, pro and con, by way of Letters to the Editor at Justin, Chris or Mark @ennisdailynews.com. What did you think about the meeting? Was it beneficial? How or did it change your mind? Why do you think it is a good idea for Ellis County and Texas? Why do you believe it should be prevented or why is it bad?
