When I was a child, and went off on some rambling, semi-hysterical tangent, my sainted mother told about the woman standing on the sidewalk as a parade was passing by, "Look there," she exclaimed, "Everyone is out of step except my Johnny!" What's so discouraging about the people who are against high-speed rail is that they ignore the fact that high-speed rail has become the transportation mode of choice -- by far!-- all across Europe and Asia. They're building high-speed rail in Uzbekistan, for heaven's sake! And we still have folks like the editors of the Times-Herald who say it's not going to work in California. It's actually quite shocking.
