Did you See What Helena did yesterday?

Yesterday, Helena voters passed a city initiative overruling a decision by their city commission.

The city of Helena was going to allow motor traffic on the Last Chance Gulch walking mall. In response, a group of citizens forced the issue on the ballot. Helena voted 77% to keep their walking mall, and requiring the city commission to hold an election on that issue if they ever wanted the decision changed.

The mind just boggles.

Once again, Montana shows that democracy has not entirely rotted away in the acid stream of bought media and buyable politicians and the growing plague of self serving stupidity.

If only I could find work in Missoula.
