Just because the front door to your local county public law library says the word "PUBLIC" on it doesn't mean you can walk out the front door with anything you want. If you didn't buy it or it wasn't given to you, it's not yours to do as you wish.

Water Works

You'd think with multitude of manicured green lawns with plants and trees that are not native to the desert climate of the Coachella Valley that California is not in the worst drought in 50 years.

The Devil's in the Details
