surving wave, wikimediaThe good news[1] keeps washing into California like a tubular [2]wave.

Due to budget problems, the California Senate cut its budget 4 percent. The Times reported[3]:

After years of turning down cost-of-living increases for its budget, the state Senate on Friday notified its workforce that 39 employees will be laid off at the end of the year to avoid a multi-million-dollar deficit, a cut of about 4% of the total staff in the upper house. 

Fifty other positions are being cut through attrition and employees will pay about $30 a month more for health care insurance premiums, officials said.

The good news:

Now, if they just could get lay off the other 96 percent in the Senate and 100 percent in the Assembly and the executive and judicial branches.
