Tonight is when we find out if Measure 30 passes. I'm crossing my fingers that it doesn't.

I've been reading the little news stories on and the like, and reading the quotes by people who are voting yes makes me sad. These people are putting their faith into an organization which has made no promises as to how all this money is going to be spent. We've done it before - we've given more and more money to the government, who says "but our ________ neeeeed it!" and then when they get the money they put it towards things like light-rail stop decorating.

I guess all I'm saying is: if you don't know or don't care about how a measure is going to turn out, don't just vote a certain way because the radio commercials are appealing to your emotions. Read about the measure. Read both sides, even. Find out exactly what's going on, and THEN vote.
