End the high-speed rail insanity

Thank you for the timely report by Ralph Vartabedian of the Los Angeles Times. With all the topnotch people having serious doubts about the viability of constructing high-speed rail, why must we continue to pursue this expensive toy?

Reading the article is frightening. The financial estimates are totally unbelievable and cost overruns, as with every other major project, will make this even more unfavorable.

Stop now. Our money is better lost now than allowing the enormous losses incurred by going ahead with this monstrosity. Is it any wonder that no private investments are forthcoming?
