They are called Trolley Busses, and they operate in many cities in the united states including San Francisco.
California uses less energy per person because of the weather not because of the lack of manufacturing.
manufacturing is never going to come back to California not because of taxes, not because of environmental laws, but because the cost of living is so high. and it is high because it is a desirable place to live.
Except the HSR line that california is billing is from LOS ANGELES to SAN FRANCISCO.
It's actually fairly simple.

Strip searching children: it's okay, they are preventing our children from using dangerous drugs, you know the things we should be preventing.
Canceling Proms: it's okay, we hate the gays, and we don't want our children exposed to the way the world really is because it doesn't fit in our world view.
Spying on children: AHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHhhhh you are watching my thieving child when they are home!?!
Parents want the school to do the tough things that they aren't willing to do. "i don't feel comfortable searching my kids if i think they are using the marijuana but it's okay because the school will do it for me."

We work on the principle you have a right to everything, unless prohibited by law
That is the real kicker there, the bill of rights specifies certain things that can not be prohibited by law. It doesn't specifiy the only rights you have, it specifies the rights that can not be taken away.
How do you design software that is able to be maintained? Many of the techniques for software maintenance are designed by these institutions, so saying "Software Maintenance" is not computer science is a bit far fetched. Writing maintainable software isn't only in the Initech domain.
And really if you are excluding software maintenance from the field of computer science, you pretty much have to exclude every other software technique. Techniques for writing maintainable code go hand in hand with every other development technique.
