This woman, unreachable by phone, is herself a clue to a mystery: how did California go so quickly from order to chaos? Republicans say it’s because Gray Davis caused and then covered up the state’s financial crisis. Democrats claim the attempt to remove Davis from office just six months after he was legally elected is a right-wing conspiracy. Both are obviously wrong. What we have here is a crime of passion, committed by the people upon their ruler. It demands an investigation.
