Following The Rats
The Riverside Press- Enterprise ran a few stories today, like this one, about people leaving California for greener pastures. This one here talks a little more about the overall numbers, demographics and reasons people are leaving. There's links to a couple of other stories down at the end of each story.
I think they're actually being a bit kind to California by focusing on housing costs as the main reason people leave the state. I'd love to get out of California myself, but it isn't because of housing costs. Heck, I'm fairly comfortable with my monthly morgage payment of only $699. I think the state is screwed up politically, and that it's only going to get worse. I'm happy for Leonidas and others that were able to flee the state. I think I'm stuck here, though, unless I win the Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes.
