Three-and-a-half hours. That’s how long I sat in my idling car snaking through the parking lot to get my COVID-19 test, with hundreds of fellow Savannahians in their idling cars. Frustrated, grumpy, and thankfully coronavirus-free, I bemoaned the state of health care in Georgia. But at least I could access it.

Compare our crumbling interstate highway system, much of it built during the Eisenhower administration, to China’s superhighways, twice the mileage of our own.

Or look at our decaying railroads versus the 15,000 miles of high speed rail on the Chinese mainland, making Amtrak’s Acela look like a toy train (145 mph vs. 220 mph, one train for 300 passengers per hour vs. China’s 1,000 passenger trains departing every 15 minutes).

We keep hearing of the
