Best-selling author Leland Gregory-who has so entertainingly highlighted humanity's stupidity in the areas of crime, business, love, politics, cruelty, and history-is back with Stupid CaliforniaThis time, Gregory builds a case for the common suspicion that Californians, from movie moguls to beach bums, have a special affinity for idiocy. Culled from print, online, and broadcast sources, Stupid Californiais a hilarious collection of true stories, trivia, and factoids about the Golden State, such as: "California's state animal is the California grizzly bear, which is also on the state flag. The bear was honoured in 1953, a full 31 years after the last known bear in the state was killed." "During the 1980s, in a bold stroke against terrorism, the Chico City Council banned nuclear weapons, enacting a mandatory $500 fine for anyone detonating a nuclear weapon within city limits."
