We ration water while LA swims in it

Re “California drought will test Jerry Brown” (Page A1, Jan. 12): I’ve only lived in California about 20 years, so I may be missing the logic in our water decisions. I read that Sacramento and the Central Valley will be rationing water, but Los Angeles won’t. It seems that LA will be fine for a couple of years, but we’re supposed to let things here dry out while we spend billions of dollars, disrupt ecosystems and tunnel through earthquake country to keep them wet. This must make sense somehow, but I don’t see it yet.
