SACRAMENTO - State Sen. Roderick Wright will remain a member of California's upper house until an appeal is decided on his eight felony convictions for lying about where he lived.

It is so esoteric a question of law that it seems almost flip to state it: Who owned the trash taken to a San Gabriel Valley landfill that, before it was closed eight years ago, became one of the worst toxic dumps in the nation?

The answer is potentially worth hundreds of millions of dollars to scores of corporations and 14 cities, Los Angeles County and the state Department of Transportation.

Like a bulldozed hillside above Los Angeles waiting for more tract houses, optimism in California is starting to erode. We don't know exactly what's happening, only that we're finally at the end of a year of public dissimulation about the readiness of the state's $35-billion budget shortfall to consume large parts of the way of life that we've wished into existence since 1945. Our California -- imperfect, heedless and lovely -- is our home, and it's beginning to feel awfully neglected.
