As if on cue, we get these amazing stories:
- Sacramento bureaucrats overrode control systems to issue more building permits to K. Hovnanian Homes in Natomas (my favorite candidate to be the next Atlantis). The bureaucrats have been put on administrative leave, but one is the son of a local politician. This was NOT an accident. Here's more on the city employee who caught the crime, and the Mayor Johnson's attempts to cover it all up. Pathetic.
- A Temecula water district rejects a moratorium on new buildings when developers convince the board that new houses will lead to growth and jobs. Is anyone paying attention the crappy real estate market? or are they just working for developers? Temecula is in Riverside county!
- Meanwhile, (more clever) water managers are asking for a hookup moratorium in Monterey.
