Guest Opinion: Legislators need courage to end high-speed rail now

Readers! Please inundate our local state legislators with calls, emails, tweets, whatever, urging them to vote no on high-speed rail. No hedging their bets, kicking the can down the road or face-saving compromises. Just vote no and end this terrible boondoggle.

California needs jobs.
Airports are overcrowded and delays are common.
High Speed Rail is a proven superior alternative to both air and automobile.

Let's put Californians back to work and let HSR become our next "Golden Gate".
