Jeanne Bailey:Forget rail, build desal plants

What is more valuable? Why do we have taxpayers’ money to build a high-speed rail and not enough to build a desalination plant in Southern California so we could save water in Northern California for our farmers and residents? Is there any rail system in California that taxpayers don’t have to subsidize to keep it from going bankrupt? I would appreciate our politicians explaining this to us.
