What someone calls Amtrak when they only know about Amtrak from radio talk show hosts, often conservative and clueless hosts. Also: Amtrac, Amtrack, Am Trac, etc.
AmTrac must be a boondoggle! I know this because Glenn Beck heard it from the reasoning foundation and said so. It starts in Macy's basement and ends up as an olf fashioned choo-choo in the middle of nowhere.
