"We have nothing in common with you people down south. Nothing," said Randy Bashaw, manager of the Jefferson State Forest Products ...."The sooner we're done with all you people, the better."

If that were the case, maybe we should let San Francisco, Marin, Alameda and San Mateo counties split off into THEIR own state. They have nothing in common with the rest of the state, as far as I can see.

Don’t forget Contra Costa as well.Might as well include Santa Clara down to Monterey, too. It’s all one metro-lump area.

The best plan some years ago split CA into 5 states, one was the area in the Jefferson concept, another was the Bay Area plus some surrounding area, Central Valley and Central Coast, LA area, and then San Diego/Inland Empire and Desert region. That gets the major economic and politically-similar areas together. It would also be fairly even in keeping Senate representation equal. 2 Dem areas (LA and SF Bay) 2 GOP areas (Orange Co./SD/Inland Empire, and the Central Valley) and one Swing (”Jefferson” because it contains the inland side, GOP and the Eureka hippies,Dem)I don’t know how the House side would work out, though.

Thing is, each area would be WAY more manageable in terms of administration.
