But I agree, we need to stop giving them OUR water. Especially since modern technology could give them all they could ever need these days straight from the Pacific (come on GE, you showed those commercials of fishing boats hauling up bottled water, show your stuff...). If they did that then it'd be us who could borrow from them.
I also agree with the comment about us needing to conserve more. My husband and I get sooo ticked when we see an errant city-owned sprinkler soaking a street and nothing's being done about it. They could take all that money they're wasting on that wasted water and build xeriscapes instead that would be just as attractive, and don't need more than a couple days of H2O per week.
If we quit giving our water to California, we would have enough for ourselves. Did you know that the Californians didn't have water restictions using our water when we could only water our lawns for a few minutes a couple days a week?
And we need to conserve. Cities shouldn't put lawn in the narrow medians and water the street every night. A little common sense could save lots of water.
