    Not supporting HSR is going to one of the greatest mistakes this country has ever made. We *will* eventually have it because it is inherently superior to all other forms of transit in the range of several hundred miles, but we will now be *way* behind the rest of the world and pay a price for a long, long time for our short-sightedness. Such a shame.

    It would be nice to save aviation fuel for long haul flights and not SFO to LAX skippers.
