A nice way to start off an election year:

There will be much to cover in 2008, with particular focus on how economic and environmental issues affect the U.S. presidential campaign. But for now, How the World Works would just like to call out California state Attorney General Jerry Brown for his characterization of EPA director Stephen Johnson's explanation for why California was slapped down by the Bush administration.

Incoherence and utter failure! 2008 is off and running!
