Picayune Mississippi Gets Nearly $1M Dollars for Amtrak 'Shelter'

http://www.greatamericanstations.com

This is from 2008, but still relevant. Small town in Mississippi gets a $845,000 grant from the Feds to build an AMTRAK station.The town is a flag stop, so the train doesn't even stop there regularly, and AMTRAK provides no services at the station. It is basically just a nearly $1 million dollar rain shelter. Insane.....the free market would never waste money like this.
