California is a wondrous place. I’m leaving

“I was talking with a neighbor this month as movers loaded his truck for Seattle.

‘California’s not the same anymore,’ he said.

He’s right. I lived in Illinois for many years, so I know one-party government well. Shortsighted Californian voters get what they elect—a loopy super-majority that lets billions in approved water bonds for reservoirs sit idle during an historic drought, so trillions of gallons of welcome rains flow to the ocean later.

But, by golly, they’re on top of the tiny shampoo bottle crisis. And forge ahead on the multi-billion dollar high-speed railroad for the countless thousands who want to get from Bakersfield to Merced quickly. And thanks to new legislation, Californians are finally free to legally reject any police officer’s plea for help.”

Andrew Malcolm, “California is a wondrous place. I’m leaving,” CalMatters, 12/15/2019.
