    Hello from San Diego, California

    Hey Everyone....
    I am a planning student in San Diego, CA working on a Masters in Planning (I still have a long way to go ) I stumbled across this site a few months ago and think its great! I am originally from West Michigan (always a midwesterner at heart) and see that the midwest is very well represented here. But, where is everyone from Southern California and the West Coast?

    Welcome from the Hill Country of Texas!

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    - Herman Göring at the Nuremburg trials (thoughts on democracy)

    Greetings from soggy Hoosierland, where the Ohio River occasionally rises up to remind us that we are not that powerful, afterall.

    We have two regular cali posters, BKM and MichelleZone, but no-one really active from the southern part of the state. Thanks for registering and try to stick around long enough to get the addiction

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    TheIrishOne is in San Diego, though I haven't seen him here lately.

    Welcome, from someone who wishes he was in San Diego!

    Welcome from the Valley of the Sun. Habanero and I are both here in AZ. There are others that don't post often from AZ too.

    Welcome from a native Californian, transplanted to the frigid Canadian Prairies. (Looks like we almost switch places, huh?)

    Welcome from the capital of the Great Lakes, Chicago!

    Don't worry, there's other West Coasters here. BKM and Michele Zone come to mind, but I believe they're well north of ya.

    Welcome from another soggy Hoosier.
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Welcome, from approximately 2451 miles east/northeast of you in New York state.
    All these years the people said he’s actin’ like a kid.

    Welcome!
    Like a couple of folks have indicated, I am in California but in the SF Bay Area. The Irish One is in Southern Cali and BKM is near me. I think there are a couple of other California folks here (like Wulf9) and I know of at least one forum member in Oregon. The west coast does seem to be underrepresented. Perhaps folks in Silicon Valley haven't discovered The Internet yet or something.

    Actually, I think several Californians have joined in recent months and are just not as vocal. I think Planizzlator (?) is in Southern Cali. I know there was a gal in San Francisco a few months back....and I think a guy there too. They are out there...somewhere...

    Don't worry: we'll find our Cali Planners.
