From the Los Angeles Times, in the Capitol Journal column by George Skelton:
“Gov. Jerry Brown enjoys a unique position that no California governor has been in for 68 years. He is a virtual shoo-in for reelection.
“That gives him an extremely rare opportunity to rise above conventional political rhetoric and open a substantive dialogue with voters about the state’s future direction. … What if, for example, Brown called for launching a massive desalination program that would solve California’s water scarcity forever?”
