I am all Giggly

Aw gee-California will have to make cuts:
I lived there for over 30 years. It was nice in the late 70's. Some undeveloped land. Reasonable prices and rents. When I left, a dumpy 1 bedroom apartment in Lancaster went for $600 a month.
Lancaster is some 90 miles from downtown L.A. in the middle of a desert. Rents in the San Fernando valley, Hollywood etc where so astronomical that whole families where living in 1 and 2 bedroom places. Pay scales for the lower end folk were near or at minimum wage but rents so high workers had trouble finding places to live. Water was scarce already-growing even more so now.
Finding parking is a joke-fees at the local lots-$50 a day? Please. About the same as what some workers make. High State taxes that seem to cover everything except food. Astronomical government fees for everything. House and property values increasing by as much as $60,000 in one year?
Only an insane mind would wonder why they are broke.
I am happy; this economic crisis was long over due. Unmitigated greed has finally bit the beautiful people in the ass. I hope it lasts
