Bridging the California divide

zocalo-calif-panel.jpgWe didn't exactly answer the question of who rules California, but last night's Zócalo panel at the Museum of Contemporary Art did get into some interesting insights about the state and its cultural touchstones, especially Silicon Valley and Hollywood. We all agreed, I think, that the more yawning split in California these days is between coast and interior, not between north and south. Zócalo reports on the evening with a story, photos and video.

Thanks to everyone who emailed with their ideas on the topic, or who posted at Facebook.
