The few people who may have stumbled upon this website in its first couple months of operation will know that I originally included a Greek letter in the title. (Only one guess which letter.)
I saw the Greek letter Δ, often used to denote change, as an ironic reflection of the fact that the Delta region of California, which could use substantial and intelligently-planned change, nonetheless has largely been stuck in a quagmire of sorts — where plans are shelved, promises are broken, and sound policy goals get lost in a swamp of seemingly endless disputes over water rights, environmental compliance, and other issues.
Then, this week, when Aquafornia linked to a couple posts on here (thanks, Aquafornia!), I learned for the first time how someone else would think to refer to the site. The good people at Aquafornia dropped the Greek letter. Quite fair, and not surprising, since I suppose it isn’t standard to commit to memory the HTML codes for Greek letters. To be honest, it also struck me as an odd title for a website. So I will defer to the wisdom and good judgment of others. For the sake of ease, I, too, have dropped the Greek letter in favor of the more straightforward title you now see at the top of the page.
