    California - Proposition 1A

    I cant wait to hear the outcome of this ballot initiative.

    The California High-Speed Rail project is a proposed high-speed rail system in the state of California. The system is being planned by the California High-Speed Rail Authority, which will design, build, and operate the system. If built, high-speed trains capable of 220 mph (350 km/h) will link San Francisco and Los Angeles in as little as two and a half hours. The proposed system would also serve other major Calfornia cities, such as Sacramento, San Jose, Fresno and San Diego.

    An implementation plan approved in August 2005 estimated that it would take eight to eleven years to "develop and begin operation of an initial segment of the California high-speed train."

    Lyle Lanley: Y'know, a town with money is a little like the mule with a spinning wheel. No one knows how he got it and danged if he knows how to use it.

    Homer: Heh heh heh... Mule.

    Lyle Lanley: The name's Lanley. Lyle Lanley. And I come before you good people tonight with an idea. Probably the greatest... Aw, it's not for you. It's more of a Shelbyville idea.

    Quimby: Now wait just a minute! We're twice as smart as the people of Shelbyville! Just tell us your idea and we'll vote for it!

    Lyle Lanley: All right, I tell you what I'll do. I'll show you my idea! I give you the Springfield Monorail! I've sold monorails to Brockway, Ogdenville, and North Haverbrook, and by gum, it put them on the map!

    Yeah, because a state that offers bonds with practically junk status can afford this.

    If it fails, Pelosi will get it funded by the Feds.

    Looks like it passed, no official word yet though.,1545381.story

    And what's the point of having the most beautiful road in the country (pacific coast highway) if you're just going to build a huge damn train instead?
