...you simply don't understand that IMMEDIATE rail access and IMMEDIATE (and closer) Interstate access were worth more than our taxpayer funded bribes and promises of dreams to come to either Continental or Caterpillar.
South Carolina ALWAYS had the inside track, but the companies kept us on the hook to see exactly how crazy we could be and how astronomical the numbers would become.
It was two cases of established, ready to go infrastructure versus future promises of a rail spur "some day" and I-74 being completed "some day."
Berger simply said, "Stop the insanity"....thankfully!
