Let's not forget that when the term "federal funds" appears in the text we are actually talking about taxpayers' money! I say spend nothing and send it back to the federal government to pay down the debt, just like any right-minded head of household is forced to do.

If CalTrain would forget the HSR thru way up to SF and just ask for Electric Trains and a new rail structure without mega construction I would think the public would be in favor.

I think the public is against HSR which will ruin the (calm) way to SF and not destroy cities in its path.
