Finished A Book I hated

Last weekend I picked up a couple books at Borders while killing some time between engagements.  I just finished – “Whats the Matter with California” (not even worth a link).  The book was so obnoxious, so overstated, so full of logical fallacy that even though I might have otherwise agreed wit some of what he was saying – I couldn’t stop hating the book. There were only two statements in the book that made it worth reading.  A loose paraphrase:

1.  People think New York and California are opposites, but one is just the moodier-broodier twin to the flightier sister.  The real opposite of California is… Texas.

2. California in its orneriness and originality refuses to fit any stereotype.
