The elephant in the room: California's fiscal mess continues to worsen

thanks to the anti-tax, anti-government policies of the Republican Right.

In other news: The City Council allows itself to get bullied; the Chico

even its charter; Arts DEVO follows the path of a plane to Chico (haven't

we all?!); and Farshad Azad shares his martial-arts philosophy.

Until next time,
