This isn't really that weird for CA, they put warning labels on everything. You can find a "Warning [whatever we're labeling] is known to the state of California to cause [some really random condition]." Parking lots, food at the grocery store, beach water, you name it, CA slaps a warning label on it.

+ - Do Too Many People Attend College?

Hugh Pickens writes "Bell Curve author Charles Murray has a new book out arguing that too many kids are now heading to four-year colleges and wasting their time in pursuit of a bachelor's degree that is a meaningless credential and that only 20 percent of all college students have the brains and abilities to understand their assigned reading. Deborah Solomon has an interview with Murray in the NY Times in which Murray says that "there are very few unemployed first-rate electricians. I can get a good doctor in a minute and a half. Getting a really good electrician — that's hard. If you want jobs that are in high demand, go to any kind of skilled labor.""
