  1. That Molina interview was a piece of work. Molina opens by saying “They’re going to cut me pretty good,” and then pulls out the Godoy harassment thing (talking about it to say she doesn’t want to talk about it), and the car accident (which is a nothing issue).

    And then, the icing: as much as admitting that CD14 is just a temporary perch on the way to a mayor bid. The brazen self-regard is unreal.

  2. Obviously wealthier areas can afford more waste. Usage should be measured according to a percentage decrease of overall usage. That’s a more accurate measure of people’s commitment to altering their own water-consumption habits. At which point, I’m certain that these wealthier areas can shed their brazen profile of wasteful entitlement and easily exceed an 8% decrease in water consumption. In fact, it may be time to prescribe a decrease to these households, which (as usual) expect the less wealthy to do all of the heavy-lifting in times of crisis.
