Wow, this is old news. The event was moved to Cubberley auditorium.

Trust Rod Diridon once he sheds his skin in the desert and slurps all the ants out of the ant hill.

Most people who jeer at the prospect of HSR SHOULD go a googling to other areas and read other papers (NY TIMES article by Paul Friedman I believe) and it is just one of many but interesting in that he is promoting the prospect of having it on both coasts and then ends the article not really pushing the idea for fear of readers' negative reaction to progress.
This is the 21st Century, and even he sounds like he is afraid of losing his job while trying to get Easterners enthused when most of them are still trying to recover from major personal losses and the common man thinks spending money for a train, is just wasteful.
This is not a time to do ANYTHING, evidently, and if you notice, NOTHING is really getting done anywhere.
