In other California news today, the L.A. Times notes that California lost another 21,000 jobs last month, which is half the total nationwide job loss for the month. Someone in the White House ought to point out that job loss is worst where Democrats are in charge of things.
Meanwhile, Davis has signed an ill-advised ban on PBDE’s, a flame retardant popular especially with high-tech manufacturers in California (you all have them in your computers). The EU, naturally, banned PBDE’s several years ago, and now has much higher rates of computer fires and injuries from other kinds of fires in products that used to have PBDE’s.
Funny; I’d have thought Davis would be in favor of flame retardants at the moment, since he is about to be torched.
