High Speed Train to San Francisco

MonorailSo California scored the cash from the Fed for a bullet train to from SF. Woo hoo. The ride will take a little over 2.5 hours. Or make that 2.5 hours and 10 years, as this thing is a damn decade away.

You just know snooty San Franciscans will make this about them somehow. I can just hear them snarking why would they want to cruise down to Disneyland or something.

But does this mean the bullet train to Las Vegas is officially dead or what? Maybe rails aren’t the way to go. Vegas can’t even keep their own little useless monorail going these days: it just filed for Ch. 7 BK.

How long until teleportation gets here already? Weren’t we promised teleportation by 2010? Along with our damn jetpacks, that is.
