Where to look to see our future?

I remember twenty or thirty years ago there regularly appeared in the media, descriptions of where one should look to see the future of America.  These were the cutting edge places  in the country.  The places where all of the cool people hung out.  The places where "what is happening there now will be happening all over the country in the future".

Almost always at the top of that list was:  California.


  1. Are you saying their prediction was correct (albeit for the wrong reason)?

  2. It would be more accurate to say that I am worrying that those predictions are coming true.

    I am also intending to take a jab at those who have argued that the California way is the way to go.
