    California OK'd aid in name of Scott Peterson, other killers

    I hope they didn't pay unemployment benefits to "poopy britches." That would take away from the legitimate claims made by people such as Charles U. Farley.

    That is a government with no concept of what it is to be a fiduciary.

    Shows what happens when you put the right people in charge.

    California ought to be proud of itself.

    They're going to set up a "task force" which is political speech for, don't expect anything to be done on this anytime soon.

    I put most governments in that category -- especially when in emergency situations. Canada, in the first wave of the pandemic, paid emergency aid to around 900,000 people who didn't really qualify. That's about $7 billion we'll probably never recover, because the political capital spent recovering it would be to heavy for a party facing election.
