I went to Stanford Law School because it is located in California. While I am a city girl to the bone, I enjoyed wine tastings in Napa Valley, camping in Yosemite National Park and hiking in Muir Woods.
I lived in Russian Hill for a few years after graduation. One of my favorite pastimes was walking up the hills of San Francisco.
When I went out of town, I would look back at the skyline and wave good-bye. But that was then. Now, I shake my head and think, WTF?!
San Francisco’s $438 million budget deficit is a microcosm of a state that is spending beyond its means.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger acknowledged that "health care and other services for illegal immigrants cost California taxpayers as much as $6 billion a year." With a projected $24.3 billion deficit, the state is expected to run out of money in July.
Besides, the federal government is also busted.
