Business Insider just named America's Most Depressing Places, and Southern California's Inland Empire is #2.
We are going into the mouth of Hell for Saturday's No on 1A rally, to the city of Corona in the Inland Empire.
Different parts of the Inland Empire have different detractions: San Bernardino's is urban decay, crime, vandalism, and abandonment; Riverside's is smog and parking-lot freeways. Corona's curse is that the whole town smells like cow manure -- always, and strongly so.
It speaks volumes about our determination to crush the Taxinator that we would go so far as to spend a few hours in Corona.
