I'm just saying that people complaining about the HSR "going to Palmdale" don't realize that it's the segment of the rail from LA to SF and the rest of NoCal. There should be no discussion about Palmdale.
Besides, it goes right past Palmdale Airport, which has plenty of room to expand. Heck, Edwards AFB could be decommissioned and reconfigured as a commercial airport, if there is HSR from us to it.
Now, bypassing The Valley and Santa Clarita for an extremely long tunnel through the San Gabriel Mountains would be really hot.
