Voice: Filner's time estimate for high-speed rail is sophistry

December 19, 2001

This is in connection with a comment made by U.S. Rep. Bob Filner in your issue of Dec. 6 regarding a regional airport in the county.

The logic of the item flowed smoothly until the comment by Filner: "A high-speed rail line along I-8 would take passengers from Imperial County to San Diego in LESS than 20 minutes." Please don't pump us full of sunshine with this sophistry … it takes over that amount of time to FLY to San Diego.

As a member of the U.S. House Transportation Committee, it seems Filner should be better informed.
