I don't think I have ever been as disgusted as I was about Monday's
leading headline. This applies to medical marijuana or any other issue.
We had two votes on this issue, yet a small group of people can sit in
their royal chamber and void that double mandate of the people. 

Why do we bother with voting? Why don't we just pull down the stars and
stripes and put up a new flag with a red background and a hammer and
sickle? It would be no less of an insult than the way a mandate of the
people is treated by our courts and lawmakers now.
