Not so Golden

California has long lured folks from across the nation. Many still come to the Golden State, but now more are flowin' out than are flowin' in: Consider Wayne Brown. He took a $40,000 pay cut and moved from the Bay Area to Kansas: Mercury News article here. Note that the MN article says that 2004-2005 was the California's first out-migration year this decade. In 2003, I pointed to a Census report that revealed that the Golden State was out-flowin' from 1995 to 2000. (Somewhat) related: A 2005 LA Daily News piece by me
