Good evening, California
In the spirit both of Guy Fawkes Night, and to memorialize the death of the rights of my fellow Californians at the hands of the Mormon Church, I quote the vigilante character V to the voters of the Bear Flag Republic.
"How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense."
