Did You Vote Today?

DH and I voted on the way to work this morning. I spent quite a bit of time yesterday afternoon studying the twelve state propositions on the ballot. Voting in California is a little strange--there are always a bunch of propositions on the ballot that I don't think should be there. I'd rather just vote for our legislators, and let them study the chicken-farming industry instead of everyone in the state voting on the size of chicken cages!

At least we don't live in San Francisco--they have an additional twenty-two local propositions on their ballot, including attempts to decriminalize prostitution and to rename a sewage plant after our current president.

I think Facebook is screwing with my comments here- I haven't been able to make any without error messages for a week! Let's see if this version works! I generally vote "no" on all ballot propositions because I figure the legislature/city council didn't pass them for good reasons. However, I did vote for the high-speed rail one because I love trains and am weak. :D I cracked up when I read about the SF ballot to name the sewage plant. Nothing nearly that interesting in San Diego. Even the City Attorney race, previously characterized by fiery rhetoric and naughty words, has gotten boring. It's definitely time for the election to be over!

I find it hard to believe that the current City Attorney has gotten boring!
