Real shortage is water storage

Re “Council backs rationing, enforcement patrols” (Page A1, Jan. 15): To gain control over people, a government must have a crisis or create the perception of one. Rahm Emanuel, mayor of Chicago and former chief of staff for President Barack Obama, said it best: “You never let a serious crisis to go to waste.” The Sacramento City Council has learned this lesson well, but the real shortage is that of water storage, forced on the public by politicians controlled by so-called environmentalists, who have opposed construction of much-needed dams and reservoirs for decades. If people aren’t alarmed by the city’s plan to dispatch a taskforce to patrol city streets to enforce water conservation, they certainly should be.
