Insight: Capitol Chat / Is California like Greece? / The World's Finest Apples / Sound Advice: Blue Dog Jam
Capitol Chat highlights the bills being pushed in the California legislature this week; Is California Greece? According to The Atlantic, no; The World's Finest Apples perform in our studio; Sound Advice features the latest Blue Dog Jam jams.
Is California like Greece? It's a comparison
that just won't die. Politicians and Cali-phobics like to put
California and Greece side
by side with an equal sign between them as a way to illustrate the
scope of the Golden State's dysfunction. But anyone who's
paying close attention knows that the comparison isn't
accurate. Jordan Weissmann is a business reporter for The
and he has recently pulled the rug out from under anyone who
compares California and Greece with an article that lays out cold hard facts about
the two very different economies.
The World's Finest Apples Drawing on
inspiration from European jazz pioneer Django Reinhardt, The World's Finest Apples is a
Sacramento-based band that plays jazz-swing. The quintet is
stopping by Naked Lounge Downtown Thursday, August 23 on the last
leg of its Django 2012! California tour.
