"History lesson".

But this California history shows once again that in times of boom, people were too busy to fall into the hole of zero-sum hatreds. Its the old story. Prosperous people or people who take seriously the prospect of prosperity are nicer and more tolerant.

We get the gap, high prices, floods, and questionable service. There is never enough money when there is a politically influential and unionized workforce.
