Featured Headline: The Los Angeles Times' cantankerous State Capitol columnist George Skelton takes aim at High Speed Rail.  Skelton wonders why it seems that everything is up for a cut in Sacramento except the politically unpopular train.  In what reads almost like a rebuttal to Skelton's piece, the L.A. Times Editorial Board responds that funding a "bullet train" is a smart investment in the long term.
