1:12 pm - Election Day in Tiny Town  
Ye Gods! It's even worse than I thought. In addition to the 14 statewide referenda on the ballot, my town has an additional 9 of its own. I was a little apprehensive, because I hadn't seen any of them yet, but after doing a little research, it turns out most of them have to do with amending the town's charter to change the name of the town's "Master" plan, to its "Comprehensive" plan. Oy.

Also, it seems we're voting on removing the phrases "slum districts" and "slum clearance projects" from the charter. That's a relief, because given the fact that my house is at the very low end of the price range in this fairly affluent town, I might actually be living in what would be considered a slum around these parts. The best part is that they're separate questions, so I can vote to remove "slum districts" and keep "slum clearance projects," or vice versa. It's tempting.
Current Mood: slumly

Actually, DX, it is my understanding that living in a slum would garner you some street credits, which I believe can be used to buy bling.

I figured it might. So I voted against what was obviously a PC attempt at keeping me and my homies down, but the man won. No more slums allowed in my town. What's a brother to do?

I believe you can pop a cap in their legislative ass.
