California voters approved $10 billion for high-speed rail, but they're now facing the stark reality: That'll only cover less than one-tenth of the cost. Despite that revelation, California is determined to proceed.
I didn't expect this report from CNN's Anderson Cooper, but he lays out the gruesome facts. Now, if only Gov. Pat Quinn, the Democrats that run Illinois and the blindly enthusiastic high-speed rail fans will pay attention, we might prevent the same drain on the resources of an already bankrupt state.
