Barrons decided to play Toto (the dog, not the band) and pull the curtain aside.

Their Income article is "TIPS Are Not a Good Inflation Hedge." Duh...

There are those that buy Treasury Inflation-Proteced Securities (TIPS), and I don't mean to be giving anyone grief about it. Your decision, whatever your comfortable with. Maybe its probably just a portion of your portfolio, or whatever.

Brightline West plans to start on the 170-mile LA to Vegas high-speed (200+ mph) rail line this year. And it sounds like they will be issuing bonds later on (I won't be buying any). As I understand it, the western terminus will be Victorville....which is still a good distance from LA. Even on Friday afternoons, I think the worst of the traffic would be from L.A. to Victorville...once you hit Victorville, I've always found that to be smooth sailing (but I've only driven that a few times).
