because people didn’t mock us enough yet

let’s face it – the rest of the country loves to make fun of california, a place they see as being full of prima donna hollywood types and flighty hippies who care more about saving butterflies than the economy. we’re the people who legalized pot, who can’t deal with even the slightest bit of weather, who party while our towns are burning down

and, well, we do leave ourselves open for that kind of thing. but i meant what i said about california being a microcosm – the problems we face are the problems the nation faces. so today, in the face of the NYT calling us ungovernable, i bring you an interesting piece on how california got so fucked and why the rest of the country should care.
