It's In The Genes

Living in California, I want to hate the guy, but he has these moments of clarity. He doesn't seem to think that government operates for his benefit alone.  I disagree with his alignment with some traditional Democrat values, but I think he has his own kind of integrity.
So writes a Commenter on an Althouse blog post on Governor Jerry Brown's comment on the idea of a law mandating helmets for children skiing.  In vetoing such a helmet law the once and current Governor said:
While I appreciate the value of wearing a ski helmet, I am concerned about the continuing and seemingly inexorable transfer of authority from parents to the state.  Not every human problem deserves a law.
Now there is a motto to govern by:
Not every human problem deserves a law.
When I say it is in the genes I am referring to the current Governor's father, Edmund G (Pat) Brown.  That seemed like a Golden Era.
