The People's Republic of California is an interesting state. While there are many referendums and interesting progressive groups in the state that sometimes make no sense to me, I was excited to see the state fighting what I feel is the good fight on two fronts.
California communities have actually been fighting off the WalMart takeover of the country. Hat's off to them for not welcoming such a scavenger business into their economies.
Also, I just found out about Senate Bill 19 in California that mandates certain qualities of food given to kids in public schools. I'd love to see how few McDonalds menu items would be allowed under this.
