Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
California got bad when Reagan was Governor and the electorate became the 'me generation'. But the integral part of what Gov. Pat Brown( Jerry Brown's father) did in building the state's infrastructuure through bond financing remains in tact.

Bond financing does give the Governor the flexibility to have projects financed as long as he curtails the 'pork'. W3ithout bond financing, California would have been stuck in the 1950's with 10 people running the entire state-seethe film 'Chinatown' and John Huston's character is theepitome of the people who ran California as their own fiefdom.
