oh yeah, there's other stuff to vote on

We went over the propositions today. Since I'm a DAMN LIBERAL, it's probably obvious how I'm going to vote on most of them, but I think I'm actually going to vote against 71 (bonds to fund stem cell research).

Obviously, I support federal/state funding for stem-cell research, but that doesn't mean we should have a bond specifically earmarked for it; stem-cell research should have to compete with other kinds of important research in whatever grant/funding process already exists.

We've already got enough damn bonds, thanks to Mr. Governator...
