Left Of California

By Libdrone, published on Nov 8, 2012

What a difference a day makes. It was startling to wake up Wednesday morning and find myself living in a state Seattle Times columnist Danny Westneat described as "Left of California". Westneat was referring to the fact that Washington voters appear to be passing Referendum 74, which legalizes gay marriage and Initiative 502 which legalizes marijuana for adult recreational use. One of the disadvantages of Washington's vote by mail system is that it sometimes takes longer to get the results.

There is no more time.
