Streetwise: High speed rail
Don Spalding, Retired postal worker: I feel high speed rail is important. Itís either pay for it now or pay for it later. However, by the time rail gets built all us retired folks will be dead. You have to look at the California population projections for 2025 and determine whether the infrastructure we have now will support it, and I say it wonít. Rail compared to highway or air is much more environmentally beneficial.
