    the bullshit, don't they?

    I recommend that other states closely study how this issue was addressed here in Iowa.

    I'm not a lawyer, and I certainly can only speculate on what went on behind the scenes, but the results are worth noting: The anti crowd now has to either come up with a way to get the legislature to pass a law that will somehow pass constitutional muster, or face the daunting task of getting an amendment to the Iowa constitution that would survive a challenge in the Federal courts.

    In other words, they've got one hell of a hill to climb.

    It bears study, and investing in some legal scholars, I'm thinking, rather than trying to come up with a political solution.  Which I think is likely to continue to shift back and forth with the political tides.
