I should have checked his credibility but the article seemed to contain
a general overview of the project worth reading for quick information.
On the face of it the NSH could be a good thing but with potentially
lots of negative ramifications, Corsi mentions bypassing unions and there
emminent domain and lots of other things. As far as I can tell there is a
real need to augment the overloaded shipping posts the US already has with other,
newer ones, i.e. Southern Mexico + NSH. I want some of those Brazilian oranges,
affordable and properly ripened, tired of crap citrus on the groser's shelves
when we can do so much better. If they can grow good oranges they can grow
Meyer lemons, like I can here outdoors in warm weather, indoors in cold.
