When you have a state where:
- More than $20 billion is invested, half in blue-chip stocks, the rest in government and corporate bonds and real estate;
- It’s expected to produce $1.5 billion a year, including a dividend for every man, woman and child who’s a legal resident of your state – making yours the only one of the 50 United States to give money to its residents instead of collecting money from them;
- and because we live in a litigious age, when stockholder lawsuits are as commonplace and familiar as the mailman,
