California Email I Received!

Do you know what happened this week back in 1850, in California?






California became a State.

The State had no electricity.

The State had no money.

Almost everyone spoke Spanish.

There were gun fights in the streets.

So, basically, it was just like California today, except the women had real breasts and men didn't hold hands.

True, true.

All of which is why I live in Iowa after twelve years in Long Beach and Signal Hill.

Darn and I thought California became a state in the Union on September 9, 1850.

Quoting AirCop (Reply 2):

That's what the history books I learned out of at good ol' Claremont High School told me, as well.
