Early Returns

When you are a property owner you pay (more) attention to election results. I am heartened, dee-lited, soul-lifted and feeling the joy to see that State voters have squashed the Prop 88 parcel tax. (No one's getting near our Prop 13.) And thank you, thank you, thank you. It looks like enough voters sussed out the Trojan Horse BS of Prop 90 to vote against it. I am as aggrieved as anyone about Kelo but this was a real estate developer prop, not a small property owner protection measure. Not all the ballots have yet been counted. Let's hope.

Locally - I am distressed that Rob Black could not beat Chris Daly. And it is distressing that the tenant relocation compensation measure (Prop H) appears to be winning. (Would love to know what the district by district returns on this looks like.)

Another election. The roller coaster of votes counted, votes lost, winning some and losing some.This merits a glass of Domaine De L'Ameillaud Cairanne Cotes Du Rhone and a little TIC Sky Palace hip hop tango to Cassandra Wilson, 50 Cent and whatever comes next on the shuffle. You got to keep rolling forward.
