    California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on Tuesday he is pulling the plug on the state's massive high-speed rail project from Los Angeles to San Francisco that was more than a decade behind schedule and billions in the red.

    "Let's be real," Newsom said in his first State of the State address. "The current project, as planned, would cost too much and respectfully take too long. There's been too little oversight and not enough transparency."

    The embattled $77-billion bullet train has been an embarrassment for the Golden State and has been plagued by problems almost from the start.
    The idea, long championed by Newsom's predecessor, Jerry Brown, is years behind schedule with the latest estimate for completion set for 2033.

    Apparently, the powers-that-be have gotten to him.

    He has just announced that the train from Frisco to the City of the Angels (what a misnomer!) is now on again.

    There are many groups that want to get their hands on the billions of dollars involved in this project.

    At least baby Cortez is still in bed with the insane leftist quack hopefuls supporting the doomed proposed high speed rail system from California to Hawaii.

    They could always wait till a Democratic president is in office and declare a national emergency and waive all the environmental laws, etc. that have caused the costs to blossom.....
