Running On A Rail

Much of the news about High Speed Rail in California is about the legions of NIMBYs who want the trains to run anywhere but where they live, or just to go away entirely. Despite a majority of voters passing the down payment bond measure, there has been precious little in the way of active support for the plan. Of course, it's always easy to oppose something -- most of the NIMBYs are actually BANANAs -- Build Absolutely Nothing Anywere Near Anything. I'm happy to see that Californians for High Speed Rail is forming up to make a greater effort to advocate for building California High Speed Rail. I've signed their petition and signed up for the mailing list. I hope to do more once I have more time to think about anything other than shipment databases at work.
