Picked up a call from a reporter today asking what my reaction was to an initiative scheduled to go on the statewide ballot in November. Hadn't heard of it before.

So I started off by saying, "Yeah. Sounds like something I'd support. But let me go look into it and get back to you."

I've Googled, I've read the initiative in its raw form and in its condensed form, I read the Education Code, and I've Googled some more.

Now I'm totally confused--I still think it's a good idea. However the damn thing keeps talking about collecting money, but never says how it's going to _distribute_ the money. So I'm not sure I really support it.

Damn politics. Politicians always make these things too complex.
