We should revisit the idea of selling off two or three UC campuses and use the proceeds to cover the increased costs of this invaluable investment (high-speed rail) in our future.
Cal covers some 800 acres of very expensive land that is easily worth $3 billion to $4 billion to a developer. If we also sell off UCLA in Westwood and perhaps UCSD in La Jolla, we can extend the tracks to Palmdale. Then we can run six trains per hour between Borden and Palmdale.
