this los angeles times piece looks at people who summarize the ballot initiatives for friends. they mention steve friedl, whose blog i read every once in a while (it’s one of those i don’t follow closely, but sometimes click through to read from other people’s blogrolls), and his 2004 california ballot analysis is online. (no link from the la times article, of course.) i think i agree with most of what he has to say, although i would say no on 67, and am a little wobbly on 65 and 1A.


this prop 66 thing has me waffling. i really think that we need to reform the 3 strikes rule, but prop 66 is not quite what i had in mind.

my voter info pamphlet says that if I commit a felony and, in the process, unintentionally injure someone, that's no longer considered a strike under prop 66.

also, if i get together with my fellow gang members and conspire to assault someone, that's no longer a strike either.

maybe that makes sense, but, i am reluctant to go along with it, especially the injury while committing a felony thing.

I'll be posting a summary of the California ballot initiatives on my blog today. I've also looked at a number of issues in the Presidential race and some tight Congressional races. Finally, I've got a free election contest where you can make your picks and win prizes. Did I mention it's free?
