Investors may not be willing to back the state's bullet train project until after it begins operating, the California High-Speed Rail Authority said in a letter to key legislators, an acknowledgment that again raises serious questions about how the $43-billion construction cost will be paid over the next decade. The letter gives a preview of the authority's upcoming business plan, a critical document that is supposed to address long-standing concerns that it lacks a credible blueprint for building and operating the system.

California's bullet train will cost an estimated $98.5 billion to build over the next 22 years, a price nearly double any previous projection and one likely to trigger political sticker shock, according to a business plan scheduled to be unveiled Tuesday. In a key change, the state has decided to stretch out the construction schedule by 13 years, completing the Southern California-to-Bay Area high speed rail in 2033 rather than 2020. The delay allows inflation to drive up the price over the additional years of construction.

Responding to an outpouring of criticism from Orange County business, civic and political leaders, California's bullet train agency reversed itself Thursday and voted to pursue a direct service link to Anaheim in the project's initial phase. The commitment came as the California High Speed Rail Authority board, meeting in San Francisco, adopted a crucial $68-billion business plan for the controversial project. When a revised, less expensive version of the plan was released last month, it called for initial southbound service to stop at Los Angeles' downtown Union Station, foregoing long-promised, continuous service to the Orange County area near Disneyland and Angels Stadium.  As an alternative, state officials had said Anaheim-bound travelers could change to Metrolink or Amtrak trains, which would provide improved service on current routes.

If there is a paradise, I imagine there will be ample parking and meters that never run out; no taxes, co-pays, high-premium health insurance or any need for guns. Everyone will get their own jet pack, too. And ice cream. Most definitely, there will be ice cream. Luckily, for those still searching for paradise, there is Paradis. Head up the hill into Montrose, hang a left on Honolulu and stroll until you see a human-sized ice cream cone on the sidewalk.

I'm always intrigued by what topics get people riled up in our little corner of the universe. This week's hubbub seems to be centered on city plans to spend money on more bike lanes and markings. A lot of folks seem to be against it. I have to admit, the notion of our financially burdened government spending money to paint lines on the road for bicyclists seemed unwise at a first glance. To begin with, according to certain surveys, we rank near the bottom for having the worst drivers and worst overall record for pedestrian safety.
