Farmers who depend on the Central Valley Project are angry over how much water they’re not going to get this irrigation season. They’re also angry at any writer who doesn’t share their rage.
After watching so much rain fall and snow accumulate in the Sierra, a reasonable West Side farmer might get maybe half his or her normal water allotment … at least a third, surely … certainly a quarter.
No, they’ll get 5 percent. That’s right, a 20th. We don’t blame them for being mad.
