To the editor: Gov.
I am a lifelong Los Angeles resident. I volunteer regularly to help feed the area's homeless, a population increasing at a rate to rival the rising costs of Brown's high-speed train. California has more urgent need than a new high-speed train.
Steven M. Smith, Los Angeles
To the editor: Shame on Brown for vetoing a bill that would have asked the High-Speed Rail Authority to explain the cost, scope, schedule and how each segment of this project is to be paid for, despite bipartisan support in the Assembly and the Senate.
This is not the kind of "business plan" taxpayers deserve and pay for. What a shame.
