Governor Brown isn't the only one dreaming about high-speed rail in California. China has come up with $100 million in seed money for a bullet train from LA to Palmdale to Victorville — and, finally, to Las Vegas. The technology is already there and there's plenty of traffic to Sin City — with tens of thousands of drivers who would rather be passengers.
Also, LA City officials are calling homelessness an "emergency." What does that mean? Will $100 million make a humanitarian disaster go away?
