Bye-Bye to the Remnants of the California Choo-Choo

Yesterday’s┬áLA Times reported that “California lawmakers” have decided to divert the funds remaining from the ill-fated California “bullet train” that was supposed to be built to run between the San Francisco Bay area and LA (and beyond), to improvement of rail service facilities in Southern California.

No mention of the reaction — if any — of the snookered California voters who were persuaded  a few years back to approve billions for the “bullet train” that now has been given up for dead.

Sic transit . . . etc.

Have a Happy Fourth of July!

And as you enjoy your barbeque or shopping or whatever floats your boat today, remember that you live in the greatest place on earth, where for all its warts and pimples people enjoy the greatest degree of personal, political and economic freedom.

So put up a flag — even a little one — and take a moment to reflect on your good fortune in being able to live here.
