For John, BLUF: Sometimes the "do gooders" ruin it for everyone. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the Web Presence, New Geography, we have the Executive Summary of a new report on "California's Social Priorities, A New Report". The full report, in PDF Format, can be found here.
The quick summary of the report from Chapman University is that the Golden State is a little tarnished and needs to recalibrate its priorities.
The Instapundit's take is special interest groups abusing environmental law to achieve narrow personal goals. Yes, that can be a problem. One we see even here in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Hat tip to the Instapundit.
