Why we’re moving away from a changed California

I’m a third-generation Californian. I grew up here, graduated from high school here, joined the Navy and served from here, and earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from California universities. I’ve worked for California companies and taught as an adjunct lecturer at Cal Poly. My wife and I raised four children here. But they’re gone now, living elsewhere.
