On Friday I will be talking to Steve [see below]. What are your comments?
Of course most small businesses can’t move but I still would like to hear from you about what are the problems of doing business in California and if you could move would you.
Yesterday Blue Shield announced they would be returning all profits above 2%. What do you think about this?
Is there anything a health insurance company could do that would make you feel that they are trying to solve the health insurance problem?
I was a little dismayed when I read in the Chronicle that Insurance Commissioner Jones speaking to the Blue Shield announcement said “ Why should insurance companies determine how much excess profit they should return” Implication any profits are excess.

Subject: california's business competitiveness
Greetings. I am a writer for City Journal magazine working on a piece on the business competitiveness of California, based on some new research on job migration nationally. I was wondering if I could interview you about the key competitive issues that influence small businesses thinking of relocating out of California.
