    Don't Californicate Oregon is not new, i saw it on a billboard back in 1968 outside of Corvallis.

    Unless you are MiWuk, you are an immigrant here in CA. My grandparents made it here in 1888. Still an immigrant. The discussion I had at OSU was in California, we are tired of pulling in immigrants from every state in the USA.

    If all those people from Denver, New York, Miami, and other places in the USA were sent back where they came from, then the CA population would me more manageable.

    This seems like a goofy standard for defining native status, as it would have no logical stopping point until we returned to the birth of humanity in the African cradle. Even the indigenous groups that predated the Spanish, Mexicans, Americans, etc. migrated to the North American continent at some point.

    My nephew went to High School in California, attended college (and had a wedding) in Seattle, and works and lives in Denver.

    We're a mobile society now. Americans are pretty much at liberty to come and go, from this state and that one, only managed by their ability to work hard enough and smart enough to afford the standard of living there.

    How could Seattle die? It has that Grey's Anatomy hospital there?

    Dr Drew, whether you like him or not , says the biggest problem is rats and the chance of the Bubonic plague. He was talking about LA but I'm sure there's plenty of rats in Seattle too.

    Another exaggerated fear or is that a possibility ?

    Yes, I agree, my definition is goofy and we live in a mobile society.

    If accurate, Washington State is kind of an outlier in that the first four are the four most populous states in the US. There's a correlation between the perceived desirability of a place, the population density and the homeless population, it seems.
