One of our more famous newspaper editors likened fallowing to a Hollywood movie where the bad guy keeps getting beat up and taken for dead but miraculously keeps coming back. He says that following is like that. It is a bad idea that just won't go away.
The trouble I have with this approach is that he does not offer a solution or even recognize the problem.
We share a water right with 17 million people and we are in a battle over that water. The Metropolitan Water District needs some water because they are losing over half of their Colorado River water. We have a superior right to that water, but they have the political power. There are only 150,000 of us.
We also need to think about what happened in 1992. Toward the end of a seven-year drought, it was published in the paper that in a water shortage emergency the governor had the power to reallocate the waters of the state. He would have the authority to give domestic water a higher priority than ag water. He could put people ahead of Sudan grass.
