Your editorial "Missing the Point" (Nov. 11) also is missing the point on one big issue.
Although I agree with your premise that "the reason that all the propositions have been getting onto the ballot is that California has not had a governor and a Legislature responsive to public needs, a Legislature with the ability to cut through special-interest influences and a governor willing to consider any view other than his own"--I don't, however, agree that the election provides fresh hope for leadership from the Legislature.
You said, "An enhanced Democratic majority should allow Assembly Speaker Willie Brown (D-San Francisco) to lead without spending his time fending off repeated attempts to overthrow him."
Willie Brown and his leadership is the reason the Assembly responds only to special-interest groups. Brown has had years to provide some leadership and has done nothing.
