SacBee Says NO on Prop 86
I was pleasantly surprisd to see the Sacramento Bee join what seems to be an ever growing number of newspapers opposing Prop. 86, the new tobacco tax that will be on the ballot in November.
Sure, not the only paper, but they are somewhat prestigious in that The Bee is supposedly a regular read for many of the movers and shakers in the state.
That said, I really wonder just how much editorial endorsements accomplish, either for issues or candidates? Regardless, it's a good thing to see positions and arguments that reflect your own get some press.
Oh, and as usual, if asked for a login on the Bee web site, password is humboldtlib, username is blogspot.
