Jack Sanders (Letters to The Times, Jan. 12) seems to have several problems with reality. A majority in any vote is measured against the number of those voting, not the number of citizens or registered voters. Therefore, 50.6% of those voting is a majority. And I suspect that more of our citizens would register and vote if it were not for the "crybabies" who resort to "legal challenges" after they lose a vote.
Jack also complains because the proponents of the "jail tax" tried to encourage voters to go to the polls and vote for the proposition. Does he really believe that the only proper action was for his "holy" point of view to be encouraged in presentations to the voters?
