    I think I've heard news reports to the effect that an overwhelming majority of Arizonans support the law...I have no idea, but just thinking that if supporters of civil rights are really in the minority, a ballot initiative might not be the most productive angle of attack. Why go to all that trouble when the vote would probably be overwhelmingly against you?

    I think the most productive avenue for overturning that law would be through the courts (Federal).
