You can keep California

How funny that Gary Horton's column ("Don't mess with Texas," Nov. 25) is the first one I've read that caused me to want to write.

Horton, I live in California for one reason, the weather. For that privilege I pay 10 percent income tax, 10 percent sales tax and a few dollars less than $10,000 in property taxes for my house that I paid $495,000 for.

And you want to "fix" Proposition 13? It is people like you who caused our mess in California, and despite high illiteracy, as opposed to 50 percent who drop out of the Los Angeles Unified School District, Texas is looking good.

Reno also looks good despite its "115 degree summers?" I guess geography wasn't taught where you went to school.

I am getting killed, and you and your ilk still aren't happy.

I, like many others, will gladly take our taxes and move to another state and you can continue to wallow in this cesspool otherwise once known as California.
