Alienation in California

March 20, 2003 12:53 AM

The New York Times brings up the growing alienation many Californians feel in regards to the Bush administration and the war. Hollywood has garnered an image nationwide as the epicenter of antiwar activity.

Naturally, we're getting pooh-poohed by east coast conservatives. David Houston, one such conservative from Florida, "It is obvious a lot of people here are against the war. Of course, it a lot of them went to visit the World Trade Center, they might think differently."

Well, David, here's one antiwar Californian that got on an airplane to NYC two weeks after September 11th, and spent several weeks there experiencing the aftermath of the tragedy first hand. In California, we have this weird notion that retaliation should be exacted upon those who attacked us.

Come to think of it, without Florida, we wouldn't be in this mess.
