One of the reasons I read the Bee - selectively - is Dan Walters. True, you can read him in other papers, like the Daily Breeze but unfortunately, El Dorado Hills is outside the delivery area for the Breeze. Today, he decks the California Legislature which he describes as brain-dead for at least four years.
My opinion is that they are not so much brain-dead as out-of-control with their focus only on enlarging the public sector control of our lives and enabling all of the special interest groups in the process.
But not to quibble with Dan's point which is that Prop 77 will bring back a measure of accountability to the legislature which has been eliminated by the safe districts developed by both political parties when they last redistricted California.
Read his opinion piece and then vote yes on 77.
