The water situation is already in a moral equivalent of war, which demands martial law, i.e., a superseding, supernumerary control of all state water, private and public, and throwing out water rights to streams and rivers and rights to underlying water. Something like Oregon declaring all beaches were public rights of way.

What is absurd is that almost 40 years have gone by since I attended a workshop sponsored by the very same governor through his Office of Planning and Research. What has happened in the interim? Time has long gone by for workshops and studies.
