This little snippet out of the Golden Gate City…

It seems San Francisco voters don’t have enough to worry about these days.  Their state is $26 billion in the hole, businesses are fleeing while Governor Brown is raising taxes, parks are being shut down just in time for the summer season, and tens of thousands of state prison inmates are about to be let loose on the general population, the actual general population.

The ballot initiative is par for the course in a city that last year focused its attention on another matter of pressing significance in banning “Happy Meals.”   That is, it prohibited fast-food restaurants from giving away toys with meals, unless those meals meet the local politburo’s nutritional set of standards.

Phew!  Those toys were a real public hazard. Kids might have actually played with them. Can you imagine?

I have to ask this question again today.  “What on earth is going on with California?”
