Reading this article and thinking about California water policy on the eve of my next exam on the same, I can't help but ask the following question:
Does a State need to grow in order to better itself?
How many people can - and should - the Golden State accomodate?
It's not that I want to close this most iconic corner of our land of opportunity - in every American Dream is a bit of California Dreamin'. But, you know, there are other cities out there that are really doing their best to be attractive, welcoming, and growth-friendly. Many in the South, the Northwest. I would advice against the arid Western States who can't water their current residents, but people seem to flock there as well.
We seem to be driving business out of the state, but not people, nor are we discouraging migration. Pretty bad combination. What if we kept business here but slowed migration?
My vote is for installing a magic sleet machine on Colorado Boulevard on New Year's Day - but that probably won't happen . . . .
