image for Bullet Train through Kansas
The Kansas Whirlwind

Kansas Governor Moe Grain announced today the beginning of construction of a 350 mile per hour Bullet train that will run the breadth of Kansas from the state capitol in the east, Topeka, all the way to the Colorado border in the west.

Citing a decline in tourism since Kansas became a state, lawmakers decided that if tourists did not want to see miles and miles of wheat fields followed by more miles of wheat fields not to mention seeing the world's smallest lion (although some believe its just a barncat with an awful haircut), then money from the state tourism department could go to the transportation department where it can be used to build the "Kansas Whirlwind".

Tourists can have their cars loaded onto the train and ride in air conditioned comfort all the way to Colorado where there are trees and mountains to take pictures of if you like that sort of thing.

The Governor's office has instructed the Tourism board that the new tourism slogan will be "Zoom through Kansas".

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
