California, I think I love you

I knew there was a reason I'm proud to live in California (despite our sorry predeliction to vote actors into elected office).

From the Public Policy Institute of California Statewide Survey: Special Survey on Population, December 2005
  • The vast majority of Californians (78%) – including Latinos (74%) and evangelical Christians (66%) – prefer sex education programs that also teach children about obtaining and using contraceptives.
  • A strong majority of Californians (68%) believe that their local school districts should require such programs in both middle and high schools.
  • Seven in 10 Californians (71%) support Roe v. Wade – including majorities of all major racial and ethnic groups – while 22 percent want to overturn it.

All I have to say is that I am so glad I live here, too. In the words of Tupac and Dr. Dre, "California...knows how to party..."

Also, what - no love for former mayor of Carmel Clint Eastwood? ;)

Well, that is encouraging (and a surprise actually).
