High Speed Rail Update

San Diego County, it turns out, will get about $100 million of the newly approved high speed rail funding. It will be used to upgrade our trolley system under the rather absurd concept that the trolley will eventually be absorbed into the high speed rail system.

So the tracks in the middle of our downtown streets, which currently have trolley trains rumbling down them at about 15 mph, will someday have bullet trains flying down them at 200 mph. Hopefully, I will not be driving my car downtown by then.

Maybe that comes from the Federal funds, not the California initiative? But yes, it does seem absurd...
