Editor,

It looks like we may have dodged a bullet (train). The governor wants to put the brakes on it, which is good news for the Peninsula in my opinion (“Not so fast: Gov. Gavin Newsom scales back high-speed rail plan” in the Feb. 13 edition of the Daily Journal).

Did we really want that 100 mph train barreling through our communities? I’m not opposed to high-speed rail, if it connected with BART on the way to and from Sacramento, just no dead-end dogleg to San Francisco as they planned.
