They’re at it again, the many folks ex-Gov. Jerry Brown derisively called “declinists.”
They have some ammunition. It’s been more than a decade since California lost its status as America’s fastest growing state. One new consequence of that is that the state this fall will lose a little of its congressional representation for the first time in move than a century.
It’s not because this state has lost population, other than during the pandemic, which has killed more than 92,000 Californians so far.
