It's the Politicans

Stratford, California

How could anyone except a politician be responsible for running gigantic farms growing water-intensive crops in a goddam desert, supported by Federal Government water projects, screwing up the great rivers. Projects from nearly a century ago providing all the water.

After all, what could be wrong with this picture? An open canal in the desert where we're harvesting winter wheat, and at ten in the morning it's pushing 90 degrees on the 17th of June. By mid-afternoon it was 113°.

It's as bad as growing iceberg lettuce in the Imperal Valley.

Those signs aggravate me ever time I drive down to L.A.
