Monday Wall Street Journal op-ed piece:
California: The Lindsay Lohan of States
Listen up, California. The other 48 states—your cousin New York excluded—are sick of your bratty arrogance. You’re the Lindsay Lohan of states: a prima donna who once showed some talent but is now too wasted to do anything with it.
That’s a far cry from Raymond Chandler’s dismissal of 1940s California as “the department store state: the most of everything and the best of nothing.”
Hard to believe the Golden State could get much lower than that. But apparently it has.
