Great line in the article. In my experience they are usually drunk in these kinds of incidents...

I thought the land of the fruits and nuts was quite a bit further south!

Talking Hi,

All the fruits and nuts moved north out of Los Angeles Ca. The property was cheaper north. But Calif. still has to many. That is why I left after 35 years. All they want is to tax the bussines people. The fools do not realize that it is passed down to the consumer.
