Here are some interesting links:
* The Bee has a little balance the budget game.
* Joel Fox thinks aloud about motives for potentially eliminating the February 2012 primary. I wasn’t a particularly big fan of three elections back in 2008, so I’m all for it again. However, he is likely right that those two elections pose a big risk of conservative gamesmanship on the initiative front.
* Higher Education seems resigned to cuts.
* The San Quentin death chamber is getting an inspection. While we are talking about all of these cuts, when do we get to cutting the death penalty?
