Son of A . . . I'm Gone for Two Days And

Major news breaks! What is UP with that?

AP State Wire News - Supreme Court allows redistricting initiative on November ballot

Hey, though, no worries. I thought compliance with clearly delineated rules was overrated anyway.

Remember - I think the policy change is necessary. I don't think Prop. 77 is as good as it could've been. But look, I'm a Parliamentarian. I like rules and procedure. And though I also like that rules and procedures can - and should be - fiddled with to serve a purpose - the fiddling can't be arbitrary and the fiddling itself has to follow some rules.

This just upends things. And let me tell you how glad I am to be in Ogallala, Nebraska right now: far from the sounds of Schwarzenegger, et al, shrieking victory for the people and turning blind eyes to the institutional costs of this administration.
