    California Conservation Corps. I can't believe it survived so long.

    Not sure if this is good or bad, but Jerry Brown gave me a job there in 1978, and now he is governor again. Just when you think you've seen it all ... well, that's California. From moon-beam to mega-region.

    Personally I think existing programs should be adapted and expanded to include aging workers because I am one. Older, stiffer, slower, yet still with a thirst to learn and a desire to enjoy the "dignity of wages". Bring on the fogey camps!
