The Great Train Robbery
From Kathy Hamilton's latest column:
Judge Quentin Kopp, former cheerleader and long-term advocate of the high-speed rail project, was interviewed on the CNN segment. When Drew Griffin asked Kopp what happened to what was a great idea, the retired judge answered, “What happened over the last 3 years was the collapse of the plan to run genuine high-speed rail. I call it the Great Train Robbery.” What Quentin Kopp was referring to is “the blended system” in which some trains use current infrastructure, some trains go slow and others go faster, in other words, not real high-speed rail and “not what the state tax-payers voted for. Under this plan, we’re getting ripped off, no question about it,” said Kopp.
