Monkey See, Monkey Do! In this case the City of Orange and the City of Atherton. Good luck, the project already has lots of momentum and stopping it will be one heck of a feat.

Got news for you "dream on", people are starting to wake up to the load of BS they were sold for HSR. Many that voted for it are now wishing they hadn't, and wishing they could take their vote back. They are realizing what they were sold was a total crock and a boondoggle.

I agree with Menlo Voter and wish that the Menlo Park City Council would go on the record as opposing HSR, too.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
