They're all wet

Today in Sacramento state leaders are knocking their heads together in an attempt to find ways to expand the state's water supply.

The only consensus likely to come from the meeting is that California needs to both expand its water supply and cut back on how much it uses per capita.

It would be interesting to make the price of water reflect its true cost — which would mean someone in desolate San Bernardino would pay through the nose, while folks in wetter Eureka could fill their swimming pools with change found in the couch.

But that probably isn't going to happen, which is probably a good thing. California's water crunch needs cooperation, not another water war.
