    Ok, so maybe I've only been in California 15 years, but the initiative process is amazingly stupid.  I realize that people are annoyed with the quality of their representatives, but here's a suggestion --- work toward electing smarter, more responsive people.  All the initiative process does is make money for marketing/direct mail firms.  If our elected representatives always have the excuse that their hands are tied by initiatives, then it makes it harder to hold their feet to the fire.  I realize that the initiative process is a sacred cow in California, but try to step back and look at the stupidity that continues to come out of it.
