Regarding "Cross-Sound rail link among plans eyed" [News, Nov. 7], I almost fell out of my chair laughing.

It's a noble cause, but since the 1960s, ideas have been tossed around to build a bridge or tunnel for trains or vehicles across the Long Island Sound to ease congestion.

Every North Shore neighborhood will point fingers as to where it may go, as long as it's not in their neighborhood. So, which modest neighborhood will quietly allow this to ever be built?
