Sign of the times: California’s multi-billion-dollar bullet-train boondoggle was predictable—and predicted.

This blurb I've linked to here is about the proposed high-speed rain line between LA and SF but it could really be about anywhere in the US where the concept is being floated. I have no idea what causes the fixation the elites have with high-speed trains. They're very expensive, high-maintenance, and take forever to build. There are much cheaper alternatives that just get swept aside too. Go figure?
