BLINK….I think I had one of those Malcolm Gladwell Blink moments yesterday. I’ve mentioned before that I have mixed feeling about parental notification laws, but last night I learned that a notification law has qualified for the November special election here in California. My immediate and unbidden reaction was “Yecch. I’m sure not voting for that!”

So, um, not so mixed feelings after all. Funny how you discover stuff like that sometimes.
