California Supreme Court Chief Justice "Calls California Government ‘Dysfunctional’"

In Sunday's New York Times, there is an article titlted "Top Judge Calls Calif. Government ‘Dysfunctional’."  California Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald M. George (above) gave the speech in Cambridge, Massachusetts to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The article can be found here.  The article begins:
In a rare public rebuke of state government and policies delivered by a sitting judge, the chief justice of the California Supreme Court scathingly criticized the state’s reliance on the referendum process, arguing that it has “rendered our state government dysfunctional.”
I am sure the speech, entitled "The Perils of Direct Democracy: The California Experience," will soon be on the iternet but it does not appear it is at this time.
