EDITORIAL: Pump the brakes on ‘bullet’train
Dan Walters: High-Speed Rail ‘blended system’ may help derail it: It’s time for a backspace-delete. Brown should acknowledge that the project as now planned is doomed and either kill it or go back to the voters with a revision that includes realistic routes and costs and lays out how it will be financed. “If it’s worth doing — a debatable point — it’s worth doing right and not with legal sleight-of-hand and pie-in-the-sky financing.”
