I'm with you. Grandkids and an upside down mortgage keep us here. Emailing elected officials is a waste of good electrons, they just send a canned response. Prop 32 is a step in the right direction, hopefully the voters are not deceived by the lies in the "No on" campaign commercials. Keep the faith, there are a lot of conservatives even here in the bay area!

As the Golden State continues to transition into Greece-on-the-Pacific, this election year should have been an opportunity for its citizens to try to stop the madness. But it hasn’t worked out that way. Instead, this year Californians have embraced the model of Kevin Bacon in Animal House, figuratively assuming the position and repeating “Thank you, sir, may I have another?”

At the top of the ticket, Barack Obama is pummeling Mitt Romney by about 16 points in the polls, but that doesn’t mean he is ignoring the state. He’s using it like Charlie Sheen uses escorts. Every few weeks...
