Which California dream?
News Analysis - Pinch of Reality Threatens the California Dream - NYTimes.com: "“In the end, we do not know for sure whether the California public really wants the California dream anymore,” said Bruce E. Cain, a professor of political science at the University of California, Berkeley. “The population is too diverse to have a common vision of what it wants to provide to everyone.
