The SF Bay Guardian’s Stephen T. Jones asks the question.

Why can’t Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger or his proxies explain their opposition to high-speed rail? They try, as they must. After all, this is a green project lauded across the ideological spectrum and around the world for its potential to prevent global warming, dirty air, and clogged freeways and airports.

But all the answers Arnold’s people give are illogical, unresponsive, or contradicted by the experts…

As I worked on my recent article on the topic, it was maddening to try to get a straight answer out of David Crane (the San Francisco venture capitalist that Schwarzenegger appointed to the CHSRA board) or the governor’s flacks.

It is of course a rhetorical question.
