Statewide tax cap is losing support
Odds are the tax cap on the Nov. 7 ballot will go down in flames.

Prop 1 a power-grab
Wildlife initiatives are not "ballot box biology" but "polling place policy." The Constitution says all power resides in the people. Wildlife is reserved to the people for common use consistent with the public interest and for the maximum benefit of the people. Who can better decide what's in the public's interest or what benefits them than the people themselves? Initiatives are a reasonable check on the Legislature, and that's why our Constitution guarantees them as a right of the people.

Just a coincidence?

Tax cap measure deserves a no vote
With a notable exception, persuasive arguments are being made on both sides of statewide ballot measures that range from hemp to hunting. The exception is the lack of positive persuasion provided by supporters of Ballot Measure 4, the tax cap initiative.

Contest obsession is no bed of roses
I love contests. The kind where you need a quick wit and a bottomless pit of useless knowledge. I guess I started in the spring of 1964, when my family learned a thing or two about earthquakes and started playing Name that Magnitude. It was simple. After a shaker (the earth was still forming then), we would all guess the magnitude, then wait for the official word to see who was closest. We were good, but couldn't guess the epicenter. We were kids, give us a break.
