I have so much to catch up on—I haven’t even posted my halloween pictures yet (bloody cupcakes from space!)—but here’s a little bit of election news. Read more about Prop 2 here. It’s far from ideal, and who knows just how much it will help (some believe laws were made to be broken), but it’s a step in the right direction. I’ll take less suffering over more, and I can only hope the campaign enlightened some folks about what is going on behind closed barn doors. Baby steps, boys and girls, baby steps.
