It would be more than fair to state that it’s rare for a month to go by without the announcement of more bad news about California’s grandiose high-speed rail project.

Things just keep getting worse. Last week’s published report by Ralph Vartabedian of CalMatters was the latest in a long line of negative projections and statistics that detail how compromised the rail effort has become.

All activity should be stopped and what has been built turned into an amusement park. The park could be called Jerry Brown's Folly. Contrast his HSR achievement with the water supply system in the Valley that his father, Pat Brown, was able to get done.
