2) um... LA, SD, SJ, SF, Oakland...
3) San Diego
4) Scheduled to happen? More like underway! The "Battle of the Bay" World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland A's.
6) A sig alert is issued by the California Highway Patrol when a major accident closes the highway down so they can get it taken care of. Usually a Lifeline helicopter will come in because of injuries.
7) Santa Monica Pier
8) There's one that leaves right from San Rafael... if you're counting it they are:
Richmond - San Rafael Bridge (Hwy. 580)
Golden Gate Bridge (Hwys 1 & 101)
San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge (Hwy. 80)
San Mateo Bridge
9) SFO, OAK, SJC, LAX, BUR, SNA, Long Beach, SAN, FAT, Monterrey, Bakersfield, San Bernadino, Redding, Merced, Santa Rosa (STS), Eureka, Arcata, Modesto, Stockton, Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Twentynine Palms, Cresent City, Santa Ana, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo

Head in the clouds... yet feet planted firmly on the ground.

1) Sesquicentennial of the entrance to the union would be sometime in September of 2000. But, the celebration has be on-going since 1998, when Mexico ceded California to the US, and nine days later, gold was found at Sutter's Mill.
2) From memory, LA (around 3.4 million), San Diego (1.3m) San Jose (875k), San Fran (735k), j Oakland (420k).
3) San Diego (where else? )
4) Candlestick Park (A's vs. Giants)
5) Well, it's plenty, so I'm guessing d or e
6) the sig alert is issued by the CHP when there is a serious problem on a state highway. This is not as common in No Cal as it is in So Cal (gridlock city).
7) Santa Monica Pier
8) Richmond-San Rafael (cantilever sections on both ends)
Transbay Bridge (this is really two double-deck bridges connected by a tunnel through Yuerba Buena Island). There is one double-span suspension section, and then a cantilever and truss section on the Oakland side.
The San Mateo bridge connects to Hayward and it's a really boring low bridge with two higher continuous box and plate girder sections on both ends to allow ships to pass.
The DUMBarton bridge and adjacent railway bridge (portions of it are left swinged out for vessles to pass) comprise the rest.
9) This question is a waste of my time I'll go back and look and see if I can find any that haven't been named.
10) Well, to be truthful, I know Mt. Whitney is 14,494 (highest in lower 48) and Mt. Shasta is something like 14,162. There are a bunch of other peaks in the Sierra that get that high. If I consult my World Almanac, it says Mt. Williamson, White Mt. Peak, and North Palisade Peak are between the two I already mentioned.
