Chicago to/From Dubuque?
3 Hour commute, 8 wours work, 3 hours commute.
(On a good day.)
Here's an idea. Take the states money (our money) that you're going to waste on extending service to Iowa and spend it to lower taxes in Cook County - then maybe business will come back and you won't have to commute 6 hours/day.

Spend the money to have Fermi Lab develop an instantaneous quantum teleportation device for humans.
That way we can all commute to China - were the F'ing jobs are.

Can you imagine to boon to the local economy if there was a station in Marengo, and when passengers stepped off, they found a vibrant yet quaint historic downtown district?
