Marin county leans a bit further left than other parts of California

I just recently finished my 440 mile bike trip across California called Sierra to the Sea and specifically the 2008 trip (click on the 2008 tab to see more detail). The next to last day ended just south ouf Pt. Reyes Station, so most of us went hunting around the town for ice cream. For those of you who don't know, Marin is one of the hotbeds of organic food (Prince Charles visited there just for the organics); you can also see more links of the visit through a google search. The politics of the area lean a bit left also. One of the funnier bits of this was a stop in the local organic food market (there was organic ice cream at the other end of the building from the Cowgirl Creamery) and I found a page-size poster that you see here in the back of an vegetable stand.

I just thought that you'd all enjoy seeing a bit of California life and how we're a bit different than some of the other states.
