Jerry Brown in this weekend's New York Times magazine: "What seems to fascinate him most is how much his state has changed, a polarization that is as geographic and anthropological as it is political. 'The mountain people, the desert people and the farming people have a different view on family, on spending, on social fashions and religion even, when you compare them with the coastal people — San Francisco and Los Angeles,' he said, in a discussion on the differences between Republicans and Democrats. 'There are these divergent positions, and when we have to get agreement, that agreement is difficult.'" Also, Brown is now a "centrist," according to friend David Geffen
