Re "Jerry Brown warns against spending, throwing cigarettes out car windows" (Capitol Alert, May 5): I think Gov. Brown's continual talk about fires and drought is commendable, as we cannot forget it is a gigantic issue at hand.
We, as citizens of California need to be conscious of the decisions we make, as one bad decision could cause an ample amount of damage. As the governor stated, throwing a cigarette out the window could be catastrophic. It could even lead to the demise of our much-needed vegetation and tax dollars.
The drought is a big issue that needs to remain in constant discussion and not be overlooked. Although nothing too bad has happened yet, one fire could spread countless miles and create much damage in California. As Governor Brown said, we should not do anything stupid. I could not have said it better myself.
