Big Bad Choo-Choo
The voice of people in the path of progress:
"In this case - forgive me - we don't really care what goes on statewide. We're very concerned about what's happening in our county, and what's happening in our county is very real and it's happening every day," said Anja Raudabaugh, executive director of the Madera County Farm Bureau, one of the parties to the lawsuit. "My guys can't get operating loans to plant trees next year. My guys can't get operating loans to buy equipment for expanding their operations because they're in the footprint of the alignment."
The fix is in. There's nothing going to stop this dumb idea from riding the state into bankruptcy. Not that it won't go "tango uniform" regardless but this will get us there faster.
