Re "Worth repeating" (Capitol & California, March 29): I wonder how many people read between the lines of the quote from Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom. In a reference to legalizing marijuana he said, "It's incumbent upon us to get that house in order before we can get to the ultimate goal, which is tax and regulate."
While simple enough on the surface, I think his true feelings and the underlying theme of the Democratic Party's philosophy, especially in California, is to tax and regulate everything. Newsom pulled back the curtain on the wizard standing behind it.
