Bernadette & Steve R - I agree... Wouldn't it be nice? And if the People's Republic of Communist CA would adopt some sensible immigration laws & enforce them, that would help too. Not to mention, our nation pulling out of wars instead of jumping into more, etc... Our nation's priorities are so out of whack, it's getting scary. And now, teachers have to take cuts to keep their jobs. What happens next year? Same thing? I mean, when do we really, honestly expect them to regain these pay cuts? I'm afraid this is a bad precedent.
