Op-Ed: Kill High-Speed Rail

New, 105 comments

Citing costs, James E. Moore, a USC professor currently on sabbatical at think tank Rand Corp, calls for California to drop high-speed rail plans, arguing in the LAT op-ed pages that the state would be better off "expanding airports, better maintaining and managing roads, and using conventional technology to burn gasoline and jet fuel even more cleanly." There are nearly 100 comments in response, including this tart, pro-rail one: "Old people run the country, they are afraid of the unknown, and the sheep of the nation consume the nonsense fed to them by politicians and the media."
