Of course, the news wasn’t all wonderful. With one hand South Dakota giveth; with the other, South Dakota taketh away. Schwarzenegger’s still our governor here in California (for our sins), and Connecticut will have to do six years of hard labor for re-electing Joe Lieberman. While California rightfully rejected the parental notification measure, it also rejected the alternative energy proposition and opted to take on the sex-offender tracking and residency restriction (don’t these people read my blog?).
But what we really need to ask ourselves is this: are we better off today than we were yesterday?
Hells yes, baby.
