    What happens when reality could derail fiction? As I noted in my blog on June 29, one of the cuts in the adopted State of California 2011-12 Budget has a potential significant impact on CBI employees Teresa Lisbon, Kimball Cho, Grace Van Pelt, and Wayne Rigsby and consultant Patrick Jane.

    Following the adoption of the budget, California Attorney General Kamala Harris issued a news release in which she noted "The Bureau of Investigation and Intelligence and Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement will also likely be eliminated...."

    One has to wonder if the 2011 fall season opener will begin with Lisbon telling her team of possible layoffs. Would make for an interesting story arc. Of course if the CBI gets the ax....

    (Yes, I know the show is fiction. And for those who a stickler's for details, the current agency name is the California Bureau of Investigation and Intelligence. But for years it was known only as the California Bureau of Investigation as can seen from this old web page dating back to the early 2000's.)

    I don't care what California does but CBS better not cancel The Mentalist.

    What happened to all the revenue from medicinal marijuana? The pro pot movement says legal bud means more tax revenue.

    As to The mentalist if it ain't broke don't fix it. Great cast great stories. More Red John!
