5 notes on Elton John’s ‘Farewell’ at Staples Center on Tuesday

Late in Elton John’s terrific show at Staples Center on Tuesday, on what the 71-year-old performer has billed as the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, his final run of shows around the world, he paused to thank all the fans who’ve supported him throughout half a century on stage. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be sitting here 50 years later talking to you,” John said. “I’ve been incredibly lucky.

My trusty spreadsheet — filled with annual state-by-state migration stats from United, Allied and Atlas van lines — shows a continuation of the long-running decline in people moving, in or out of California, with exits slightly outnumbering arrivals. Van lines moves, which tend to be pricey relocations, are seen as a yardstick of executive-level op...
