A Guide to California

It is often said that California is, and behaves like, a country in its own right. It certainly has enough to satisfy any traveller: a breathtaking range of landscape, beaches sparkling with sun and surf, vibrant cities, fabulous collections of art and antiquities, first-rate wines, the fascinating legacies of the Gold Rush pioneers, and the ever-fresh legends of Hollywood. California has a unique take on the world, and this is reflected in its warm and hospitable welcome.

I'm amazed to see on your tv advert that you keep orcas in captivity. Why do you do this? Don't Californians care about wild life? Don't Californians know that imprisoning cetaceans is a death sentence for them? Capturing them is traumatic, then removing them from their family is catastrophic enough without making them perform tricks for food, never be able to swim the oceans of the world and be prone to diseases from the confined space.
How would you like to have your teenage child captured and imprisoned to do tricks for humans?
Perhaps you think that you are more important than wildlife?
What is your rationale for this?
I suppose it's just a profit motive and general greed?

I've recently moved from California to UK. I can't believe that people actually want to visit California. It's the worst place I've ever lived in. Safe your money people, go somewhere nice.

I've just seen your advert; the opening comment by the miscellaneous Kardashian sister makes no sense. If it's a misconception, then it is, by definition, incontrovertibly and indisputably NOT true!
No complants about your use of the fabulous Betty White though!
