Newsom is leaning on the side of fish in the state's never-ending fish v. people debate, but is at least trying to deal with farm and urban water needs.

A Southern officeholder gains little from pushing for a right to post-delivery abortion.
New ideas, like leasing naming rights for public bridges and buildings, would save taxpayers money.
