Comments: Johngalt extends his Warholian Fame

If I may segue off my own post, I do take exception to Cracked's critique of "three strikes." The problem is not with sports metaphors -- the problem is with drug laws. I suggest we keep three strikes, but reform drug laws or keep them out of the count.

Somebody who commits three violent felonies deserves hard time and I don't mind forcing a lenient judge to provide it. The problem is caused when two of a person's "strikes" are possession (maybe those are "fouls." Then again, if they're trying to bunt...)

Yes, the effort was called "Seconds Count!" and the ballot measure failed 60-40 percent. Boulder got to keep its speed bumps and traffic circles, but they lost me. (I'm sure they still regret it to this day.) I think we could have prevailed if we'd taken on just the bumps, but others in the group were more opposed to traffic circles which, being "European" are wildly popular in the progressive village of Boulder.

The website has completely changed since then but it is still being maintained: Seconds Count!
