Do we have to be from California to email?
No, just be prepared to have your communication searched for fruits and vegetables at the border.
A few years back on the way to Burning Man for the first time, we were stopped at the northern CA border (we drove down from western Canada) at the little fruits and vegetables protection agency stop, and they made fun of us for declaring our peeled baby carrots.
I don't know. Normally I'd guess "yes", but since this affects tourism, maybe they care what outsiders think too.
Shot an email off just now *salutes*
Given that I unfairly, and drunkenly (but still politely) ranted at your bar staff for not serving me alcohol after 2am ... I probably should shoot off an email in support of this. Even if they don't care about foreigner's opinions.
How do you politely rant? This is knowledge I would like to have...
You'll end up with a drunk and belligerent Schwarzenegger wandering in at 3:50 am with a gubernatorial demand for a cosmpolitan and house music.
If he was in Terminator garb, that would fucking rule.
Your cosmos. Give them to me, now.
