In Dostoevsky's "The Brothers Karamazov," a priest recalls the words of a man who confessed: "The more I love mankind in general, the less I love people in particular." Judging by California Gov. Jerry Brown's latest plan to "save" the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, writes Steven Greenhut, he appears to suffer from a variant of the same condition. California's Green Governor loves the Earth in general but he doesn't seem to care about particular earthly environments.
