    Sweet, lets reform so we can go from last place to 2nd last place!

    • Alex Ihnen

      Yeah, you’re right, might as well stay far in last place. Hey, if it’s not broke…

        Eh, I agree with both. This would be huge progress, but we would still have a ways to go.

        • Alex Ihnen

          That’s fine, as along as we all agree to vote YES on Prop R and then keep the reform pressure mounting.
