Environmentally Incorrect: the Peripheral Canal

…as depicted by the late, great Paul Conrad:

We as a state have forgotten — if we ever knew — the environmental facts about the peripheral canal through the San Joaquin-Sacramento delta, but we remember this: the l982 vote against its construction was an expression of a resentment against Southern California. 

That's what Paul Conrad caught. No one has ever, nor likely will ever, replace him on the opinion pages of The Los Angeles Times.

His was the most powerful of pens — and the least politically correct.
