Question for everyone: which is harder to do: build a 3-4 mile long bridge or a 500 mile "high-speed" rail line? I'm just asking, since it is not all that obvious that the state can pull off a $6.5 billion dollar project to rebuild half of a bridge. Yet it wants to take $100 billion dollars we don't have to build a precision railroad through earthquake country. Just askin'. This is a particularly rich quote from the only real Senator on his side of the aisle in the Sacramento
Simitian suggested that it was odd that Wiles would have chosen to go "straight" on the Bay Bridge while faking other data.
"It seems a little hard to fathom why somebody's work would be without question rigorous in one venue but then problematic in other venues," Simitian said.
Just askin'. Here's a photo of the bridge from Treasure Island...let's hope it's sound!
