Here are two letters to the editor I wrote that were published recently. The first is in the San Francisco Chronicle and addresses the proposal to build a statewide high-speed rail system in California. The second was in the San Jose Mercury News and is about whether or not the government should step in to force airlines to compensate passengers when they get stuck on planes for a long time or have other travel problems.
I’ll include a link to the editorial to which I responded, my response, and for the Mercury letter, a response that another reader sent in to my letter. Also, a Deseret News reader sent in a response to my letter, so I’ll include that too. I don’t agree with the responses to my letters, but it’s always good to hear other opinions.
San Francisco Chronicle
Editorial: Governor should make high-speed rail part of his legacy
My letter: Past costs for high-speed rail irrelevant today
San Jose Mercury News
Editorial: Congress should make airlines compensate passengers
My letter: Fares would rise if airlines docked
Response to my letter: Airlines have no competition
Response to my letter: Freedom Fest too exclusive
Finally, I wrote another blog post on PRI’s website about how California is unfriendly to business:
Pacific Research Institute
California business climate still unfriendly
