Everybody's Got One
A blog. An opinion. An elimination orifice. A dream. An agenda. A past. A hidden talent. A conceptual filter. A cross. A charism (often the same). A task. A wound. A destiny. A lost love. A blind spot. A bad habit. A secret. A passion. A soul ... okay, maybe not everybody ...

I see a remarkable business opportunity – for someone with, admittedly, a lot of capital – to open a string of SUV dealerships along the Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon borders. Granted it will be difficult and unusual to organize around a product category rather than a brand and its entire line, but surely the manufacturers who are about to find themselves prevented from selling their highest-margin products in a major market will cut an innovative retailer some slack.
Yet more unintended consequences: what percentage of California state revenue comes from sales taxes on big-ticket items like large automobiles, and how will they feel about diverting that revenue stream into the neighboring states?

Maybe the California legislature should leave energy/environmental policies alone and just go back to screwing up its once-world-class University system.
