My mistake! Gov. Jerry Brown is a genius. He knows full well that high-speed rail — all $60 billion of it — will allow our Los Angeles friends and Bay Area compadres to zip right through the brown, barren, lifeless,Valley and not even have to blink an eye at our demise! Pure genius!
But governor, have a little pity and mercy. Give give us just $10 billion of your high-speed rail money to create higher dams in areas that already have them: Shasta, Oroville, San Luis, Pine Flat, Millerton, etc.
Is $10 billion too much to ask to keep our farms in production, food on our tables and our Valley economy viable? Or do you have a plan to add computer chips to our salads for extra protein?
