4. just voted this weekend, here's my take

77 and 78 - basically harmless, voted yes.
79 - hell no
80 - yes. "hell it's about time" yes.
81 - tossup. probably the hardest measure on the ballot for me. my wife voted yes because she thinks gill nets are inhumane. i didn't vote on this one.
82 and 83 - no. I like the poetic justice of tribal casinos, small consolation though it may be. and there's been a study showing the more slot machines the "Grange" installs, the less money schools get from the lotto, to the point where the education budget stands to lose money if the "Grange" develops to its (would-be) legal potential.
84 - NO. rich people pay the fuck up.
85 - yes. the kicker has always been a stupid idea. at least if this measure passes, some of the money gets rolled back into the education budget.
