It appears there will be no opposing statement in the voter’s pamphlet for Proposition 3, the one sponsored by the city of Monroe that asks voters a rather goofy question about what they want to do in 2013 with the devil cameras from hell, not what they want to do with them now.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a better example of "kick-em when they're down" politics this year than the workers' compensation legislation rushed through Olympia on Monday (May 23).
By the governor’s own estimate, the bill will take about $1 billion that injured workers would have received over the next five years, and give it to their employers instead.
