Mercury News editorial: It's payback time for High-Speed Rail in San Jose

An editorial in today's Mercury News contained a nice shout-out to the hard-working group who were successful in getting high-speed rail to choose a route that does not cut through Gardner and North Willow Glen:
San Jose has scored an important victory with high-speed rail already: moving the preferred route out of the Gardner neighborhood to an alignment over freeways that Larsen's team suggested. But the real credit for that victory goes to community leaders in Greater Gardner, who rooted out facts, raised excellent questions and presented it all so reasonably but persistently that they could not be ignored.
Maybe the city should call on them to go to bat for the design agreement.
