Oh well here is a shocker: Nobody in California had the time, inclination, or detailed budgetary expertise to make a good ruling onthe many ballot measures up for approval yesterday, so instead they voted "no" on everything except a legislative salary freeze and then they went to In-n-Out Burger for a double double.


This whole enterprise had FAIL written all over it from the very beginning, because nobody really knew what they were voting on, plus they'd just voted like a month ago on something else, and really what is a state legislature for if not to do all this terrible voting crap all the time?
