Rick Velotta hit the nail on the head in his column. The planned DesertXpress to Victorville, Calif., will be a waste of money and a complete disaster. Sen. Harry Reid wants to spend $5 billion of taxpayer money on a train to nowhere? The maglev train, which would have gone straight to Anaheim, would be the stimulus plan that Las Vegas has needed. The DesertXpress, on the other hand, which will go only to Victorville, will be a total failure, just like the monorail, although on a grander scale.
