Bullet Train to Disneyland from Vegas mired in Controversy

The OC Register has a look at some of the controversy surrounding the Mag-Lev Bullet Train being planned for a route between Orange County, CA and Clark County, NV. Of course, everyone is calling it the Disneyland to Sin City Express.

Though the proposed train would pass through a Nevada town in which prostitution is legal, the train would not necessarily take passengers from the gates of Disneyland directly to brothels outside Las Vegas.

The hub would be within the city of Las Vegas, according to the proposal. Prostitution is actually not legal within that city.

The hub in Anaheim would still require additional transportation to reach the Resort Zone.

To me this is one of those no-brainer ideas. It makes perfect sense to connect the two largest west coast tourist cities. That said, there are plenty of other routes ready for a bullet train that make as much sense. So this is why politicians get the big bucks.

What do you think? Should tourism get the bucks or should the project go to a region capable of supporting multiple industries first?
