The ban on gay marriage passed (sigh-come on, California) but at least we also passed Proposition 1A, the Safe, Reliable High Speed Passenger Train Bond Act.The act approves nearly $10 billion in bond money to build a modern bullet train linking all of California's major cities. It's expected to reduce congestion and pollution and provide the state with a triple return on investment. The entire system is supposed to be complete by 2030.So we can all-straight or gay-look forward to a fast, efficient, kick-ass rail system. Unless, of course, this is perceived as an attack on the traditional definition of train travel.
