As long as they live up to the promised mitigations from the EIR, I'm not worried about the effect on the neighborhoods. At least we won't have to listen to those awful train horns blowing all day long! Even a loud woosh is better than that.

I recently rode the AVE high speed rail system in Spain - what a great experience. Smooth, quiet and fast. Isn't the same firm also engineering ours? That would be a wise move, despite my initial misgivings about "outsourcing". That said, we ought to be focusing on getting high speed rail from LA to San Jose and Sacramento and skip the peninsula altogether for the time being.

You people are really and truly as knowledgeable as you come off.
From the dialogues, I can only visualize adjoining cities and towns filled with people who look like Groucho Marx matrons, and eccentric stage door johnnies.............
It is so funny to think you all actually exist.
I am so impressed by the editor for being so astute to print this slice of Americana which is a mixture of high camp in the LSD aftermath of the 60's. These are the people who did not take anything very "hip" and still liked their roast beef rare at the country club on Sundays.
We kids used to insert hot peppers to see if they would react and their two martini tongues never felt a thing.
The smart asses like me, had fathers who belonged to the Bohemian Club and remained Democrats while inviting writers like Norman Mailer not be permitted to be guests....ironic how people just chug along in this Utopia when the possibility of imminent destruction from earthquakes and unnatural disasters increase, has inspired an entire new kind of people whose similarities are due to lack of vegetables in their diets.
