Dan Walters at Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce, August 27

My hero Dan Walters is coming to town. He will be
speaking on Politics in California this friday at the Elk
Grove Chamber of
, practically across the street from where I live.

Dan Walters is arguably California’s
finest political columnist, and his reality-based approach makes him very
‘radical middle’ in many ways. In particular, I am greatly intrigued by his
proposals to radically overhaul California governance and rationalize tax collection . I actually asked
him if anyone was attempting to implement that, but he said its “virgin
territory”. Perhaps someday I’ll write a model
along those lines myself…
