11. I'll look at those more closely
Still, I feel a pretty strong desire to cast a protest vote of sorts - if none of these ballot initiatives pass perhaps it will discourage (in a small way) the over-reliance on the initiative process that we've been seeing recently (in my opinion, anyway). Schwarzenegger is guilty of it in a big way, but it really started long before him.

I'd rather have the Legislature and the Governor make these decisions after careful consideration, and I'll express my views by choosing my representatives.
