And Poor Ahnald! Another in the Terminator franchise is released (tonight I believe) and I bet he wishes he had a job as easy as his movie career must seem in retrospect. Since the ballot props that were needed to (get closer to) balance the state’s budget all failed, the Gov and legislators need to find some other way. Expect a lot of gnashing and wailing from all corners in the coming weeks and months.
Will it all lead to a constitutional convention to repair the state, as many want? Check this week’s Economist for a great rundown on that topic. I don’t know how it will pan out but that will not be a fast enough process to repair the current budget problems. And as a member of a minority whose rights would most definitely be imperiled I am far from convinced I want to see a constitutional convention.
