Finally common sense prevails. Japan, Europe, and most of the first world nations enjoy and benefit from high speed rail. The United States (the country of my birth) seems to be stuck in the 1950’s – like ‘duck and cover’ from reality. Thank god for California – a first world state among about 40 other state backwaters. Go, Governor Moonbeam, go!
Oh…and for you detractors that maintain California cant afford it – that my friends is a load of bull. After all, California’s forced tax contributions to the Iraq / Afghanistan fiascoes eclipse the cost of fast rail. Anyone with half a brain should support 100% the revitalization of our own nation, not that Middle Eastern sandbox where we reap nothing but hatred and misery.
Support America – anything less is treacherous.
