Something we can agree on about California

I appreciated Charlie Camosy's appreciation in the July 14 issue of the hard work that our state’s bishops and lay leaders are doing in such difficult circumstances.

But while many of us disagree morally with the policies enacted by our elected officials, something else is happening, too: California is literally becoming unlivable.

For many families, extremely high gas prices and unaffordable housing in cities have made the cost of living here too high. Homelessness is everywhere. If there’s a middle class here in LA, I can’t find it.

Perhaps Gov. Gavin Newsom and his allies should take a break from the culture wars and make this state Golden again. That would go a long way toward healing the polarization that Camosy talks about.
