It’s all about water.

At least this column will be.

If you haven’t read the big, giant water bill that had Sen. Barbara Boxer’s panties in a big, giant twist, I encourage you to give it a skim.

That bill has everything in it.

Sure, it has provisions that will authorize some operational changes in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

Which is why Boxer spent her last few hours in office Friday railing against it and against Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Bakersfield, whom she accused of adding the California “poison pill” to the larger bill under the cover of darkness as a “midnight rider.”

Didn’t exactly happen that way.
