Okay, I'll call you parochial but only if you'll call me sensible: Measure A will surely save tons of money that could be used for, say, much needed after school gang-prevention activities; it will nearly double the number of citizens participating in municipal elections, increasing the "democracy quotient"; and I have a hunch (call me predictable, er, predictive, uh, predicative--oh heck, just don't call me late for dinner) that Measure A will also lead to a much better informed Santa Barbara electorate--voters will have "caught the bug," so to speak, from increased media coverage of all things political, local as well as national. (And David, I tremendously enjoyed your "Iraq to Islay, abortion to Anacapa." May I add "from gay marriage to gaping holes in our unbiased daily news coverage"?)

Anyway, that's how I feel so you can call me finished.

I'm e-special-ly happy to see such passionate and well thought out responses to the Indy's unbelievable take on Measure A. Hopefully a lot more of the paper's readers looked beyond the headline to see that the "staff" recommendation, all things considered, was actually "Yes on Measure A." And a big thank you to the League of Women Voters for its support!

David, you forgot to mention that Measure A will cure dandruff, too.

No, seriously, voters need to get behind Measure A because it is going to save taxpayers money while significantly increasing the number of voters weighing in on local elections and ballot initiatives.

Wow, what a coup -- a fundraiser at our very own Biltmore (well, Montecito's), with drinks afterwards at Joe's, is the reason Rudy was "too busy" to attend Tavis Smiley's people-of-color Republican debate. Doesn't that make us feel important!
