Thoughts About Our Golden State

As I flew from foggy, chilly SacTown to San Diego yesterday, I read Angle of Repose, a book about how opposites achieve reconciliation--or not.

I have often wondered if California should be divided into two states, with the border somewhere in the Tehachapis. Northern California, a place of abundant natural resources and a rich culture, would be better off without SoCal, an overpopulated desert.

We'll keep the water.

I have a number of other thoughts about Angle of Repose, and if anyone wants to email me about it, please do so. I thought it was a fascinating book.
