I stumbled upon this quote that an old friend sent me years ago from Jello Biafra.  It got me thinking about Measures 66 & 67. 

“Some day, even the experts will figure out, that crime isn’t caused by rap music, or even my music, but by a power structure of self absorbed property owners to brain dead and stupid to see that if you’re too goddamned greedy to pay taxes for schools and services they’re not gonna be any good anymore. And if you teach people that life is cheap, and leave them to rot in ghettos and jails, they may one day feel justified in coming back to rob and kill you….duh.”

By the way, Warren Buffet makes the same point…
