Then and now
Anyway... Just reading the PG series on what constitutes the power politics of the region, what comes to mind is this old graphic. The only thing I take away from the series is how amazing it is here just how much the names don't change. Anyone from this graphic 26 years ago sound familiar these days? The question really is who does not sound familiar? Granted California might get Jerry Brown back as governor in the near future, but in some places things change after a quarter century.
