    ... advantage of the Madero to Corcoran end points where the original Initial Construction Segment was to be built.

    That was weakened when it became "Fresno to Bakersfield", as far as propaganda impact, but it still likely had the kind of bite that you say among the tea party and fellow travelers.

    Which suggests the Governor's office knew what it was doing when it highlighted the Initial Operating Service between Merced and the San Fernando Valley rather the Initial Construction Segment from north of Fresno to north of Bakersfield. Its a lot harder to cast Burbank and Sylmar as "the middle of nowhere".

      i keep waiting for democrats to wise up and use that opening to milk the central valley inferiority/persecution complex to their advantage. "they say you're nobodies, that your communities are nowhere. they'd rather just let you all rot out here in the valley while they pocket your tax dollars for tax cuts and stuff in the LA suburbs, but we say everyone in california is part of the same state, and the valley deserves a world class infrastructure too."
