Too busy to blog

We're surrounded by petitions in the SAFE California office this week.

No wonder -- even the paid signature gatherers who supplemented our volunteers were amazed at how eager folks have been to replace California's death penalty with life sentences. In an article about how the prices paid for signatures for by contractors (usually $1 and up) have been low this season, the interviewee explained that some petitions were still good business:

... a higher price isn't necessary because voters are so eager to sign a petition.

This latter situation -- popularity that makes gathering easy -- may be the case with the death penalty measure. In one San Gabriel Valley parking lot, I saw a half-dozen people lined up just to sign it.

When we dig out from under all this mail, we're going to get this measure on the ballot!
