Totally agreed. California should be 4 different states:

* Sacramento and parts north, AKA Jefferson, for environmentalists, 
loggers, and marijuana cultivators

* Central California, AKA Californutopia, from just north of Santa 
Barbara to Marin, for utopians and geeks and mystics and central-valley 

* Southern California, AKA Californialand, for entertainers, beach bums, 
desert retirees, and defense contractors

* Baja California, AKA Mexifornia, which the US would buy from Mexico
