Alaskan Airlines Adds Salt Lake Route at SJC

The new offering will give travelers more options and competition does a pretty good job at keeping prices low. Now if only we could get a new international flight or two.

    Caltrain's getting electricity, and that's it. Downtown ext has been in planning for generations, other upgrades not till HSR (i.e., never)

    Meanwhile, San Jose gets everything it wants (shitty light rail! expensive HSR diversion! station named after local power broker!), and...
