Biting the bullet

Normally, I’m all about public transportation, but the Natural Resources Defense Council (an environmental organization that I know and love, and do some web work for) sent out a newsletter yesterday urging California activists to speak out against a proposed bullet train route along the Los Angeles River. This is the first I’ve heard about the project.

The California High-Speed Rail Authority has proposed a bullet train route that would spoil newly created and planned recreational areas at Taylor Yard State Park, near Cornfield State Park and along the Los Angeles River. Although high-speed rail will benefit all Californians, there is no need for the system to fracture communities or degrade open space, particularly in one of the nation’s most park-deprived urban areas.
