"TROUBLED CALIFORNIAN". Is there any other kind? "Troubled" how? Certainly not troubled because of crushing, no hope to ever it pay it off, without help from responsible States, debt. Certainly not troubled because companies and intelligent individuals are moving out in masse! Certainly not troubled that your tax base is dwindling and the takers will soon not be able to sponge off the makers, any longer. Certainly not due to the fact that you will be the repository of all the third world's degenerates and that they will demand that they be taken care of! You've got troubles all right there, Fan Tan, but your oblivious to the real trouble!
