Something that would be bad in this area would be a crash. There was a large crash in Italy about a month ago that injured and I think killed some people. That would be disastrous for our area.

HSR will be great for the Bay Area, but we must be very careful how we do it. There must be forethought so no huge accident happens that could jeopardize HSR all around the United States. Now that would be REALLY bad.
