It was good therapy for me. According to the common General Discussion thread nothing ever happens good in California nor bad elsewhere.
Watch threads where some bad law is passed elsewhere or something weird happens - if it happens in California the state is ALWAYS in the tread topic. If it happens elsewhere the state will never be mentioned in the title and it's pretty common to have zero mention of the city or state even in the quoted news story. I end up having to look up the story to put it into a state. I've fooled the General Discussion a couple of times in years past with news stories that I've warped to make them sound like they came from California ... and then changed the state later.
There's a reason that the General Discussion puts so much attention on us.
