News Panel: The latest on Occupy Oakland, California's high-speed rail plan, and more
Wednesday's mostly peaceful day of rallies, speeches and marches, organized by Occupy Oakland, attracted thousands of people, but the violence that followed late at night captured the headlines. Now, what's ahead for the Occupy movement? California's high-speed rail plan, connecting Northern and Southern California, is under fire for running behind schedule -- and it is now projected to cost $100 billion. That's twice what voters were told in 2008 when they approved funding for the project.
