The Sacramento Bee nails San Francisco leaders for their “hysteria” over restoring Hetch Hetchy.
A drive I wrote about here.
After all, the current petition drive is not to drain Hetch Hetchy — that will require a second vote — but merely to ask voters to approve creating a plan to do it. Hardly apocalyptic.
If you’re curious what Hetch Hetchy looked like, and whether it rivalled Yosemite Valley in beauty and majesty, the Bee story is accompanied by an Albert Bierstadt painting of Hetch Hetchy circa 1876. Check it out.
