A new website that is, in my humble opinion, a MUST

My friend Laer, who started blogging at Cheat-Seeking Missiles (which is now on hiatus), has created a new website devoted to the insanity that is California.  It is called, appropriately enough Crazifornia, and is part of his ongoing project to document (ultimately, in best-selling book form) what happened in California.  This matters, not just because California went from the greatest state in the union to being a total wreck, but because the problems in California too often spread to and infect other states.

Laer views the project as collaborative, and seeks help:

You can help! Via the “Contact Crazifornia” button above, or by email to crazifornia @ laer [dot] com, send me your own story about how Crazifornia’s ridiculous regulations, ludicrous legislation or puerile policies are driving you crazy.  If I use your story, you’ll get a mention in the acknowledgments of my upcoming book,Crazifornia – How California Ruined Itself and is Poised to Take the Rest of America with It.

As you’ll see when you visit the site, I’ve already shared with Laer some of my “crazy in California” stories.

    You never have to wait very long for bizarre headlines from Ca.

    As a former resident of  Berkeley, a.k.a. Berserkeley, I saw some of the insanity 40 years ago. Such as those fools who thought that it was enlightened on the part of the government of North Vietnam to supply a ration of a pound of rice a day. Even in my leftist days, that seemed to me to be praise that went  over the top. The fanaticism of some of the Berkeley left turned me off even 40 years ago, and I was of the left.
    An example of the excessive self regard of some of  the leftist set:  middle aged professionals predicting1970 era Berkeley would later be viewed as  an equivalent of Renaissance Italy. Just a little over the top in self-regard? Definitely not a prophecy that has stood the test of time.
    Blindness, fanaticism and excessive self-regard: all that was visible in Berserkeley even 40 years ago.

    In honor of the recent LA County Board of Supervisors’ decision, here is Lyle Lovett singing LA  County.  No lesson, no moral. In honor of all the Texans and Okies, among others,  who moved to California during the Great Depression to get some of that Do Re Mi.
