One question I have about Gov. Jerry Brown’s push to fund high speed rail in California: Have proponents stripped the project down so far to make it politically palatable that they’ve doomed it with unworkable practical, technical, or economic constraints?
Honest question. I don’t know the answer. But it seems like the ingredients — or more specifically, the pressures — are there to create that kind of result. Curious what our California readers have to say on this point.
