Re: your Sept. 8 editorial, "Left at the station":
This editorial started with an excellent premise of state-of-the-art European high-speed rail service and our overloaded airports and highways, flight delays and lost luggage. However, it then got lost in a bit of silliness by suggesting that we build high-speed rail just to show that we can do it.
What a ridiculous direction of wishful thinking.
I would suggest that The Star editors visit the California High-Speed Rail Web site, www.cahighspeedrail.ca.gov, and expand on what has been planned for our state. Travel by rail between Los Angeles and San Francisco or Sacramento at 220 mph. Imagine, LA to the Bay Area in 2 1/2 hours, and you can keep your shoes on!
Now that's an editorial I would like to read.
