President Trump described his administration’s deregulation efforts in remarks at the White House on Thursday. He then stood between two piles of paper representing government regulations in 1960, (20,000 pages, he said), and today — a pile that was about six feet tall (said to be 185,000 pages).

“We are just getting started,” President Trump said in announcing a rollback of regulations on the environment, health care and financial services. “It is a mirage more than a miracle,” said

And Finally ...

On Thursday we featured a conversation between two Times correspondents on whether the rivalry between Northern and Southern California was fading. The discussion drew a strong response from readers. Here are some excerpts:

— I’ve always thought that the Bay Area was politically more liberal and culturally more conservative while SoCal was politically more conservative and culturally more liberal. This is less pronounced now but still true. The new division is more urban/rural, coastal/inland, east/west than north/south. — Terry Burnes

— NorCal folks tend to be more intense — about everything. Food, recycling, art, politics. There is a seriousness to all aspects of life. SoCal lives up to its reputation as being generally more chill. Angelenos are like the catering trucks to San Francisco’s four-star dining. They’re just as awesome, only a bit messier. The two areas are like siblings; competitive, bickering, supportive, loving siblings. — Rachael Cudlitz

— Having lived many years in both Northern and Southern California, I think what is most striking is how oblivious the two halves are to each other on a day-to-day basis. In each place, the other is talked about very much like one would report on events on the other side of the country. — Marcia J. Bates

— It is no surprise that San Francisco and L.A. don’t see a north-south rivalry. The are both highly democratic, densely populated, commercialized areas which impose taxes for their pet projects on the rest of the state. These areas control the state budget without needing or wanting any input from rural areas. If you really wanted to know about schisms in California you should have asked a reasonable State of Jefferson supporter. — Anita Paque.
