A two-thirds vote on property tax increases is the only safeguard homeowners have against the ever-present and always greedy political forces that would drive those taxes to levels unreachable by most residents. Since roughly a third of the people living in California are actually living in homes they own, it seems reasonable that they have a voting voice equal to the two-thirds of non-taxpaying residents who find it quite easy to vote for property increases, especially for "good" causes.

Terrified, 19-year-old Tammy Marie Davis cowered in the doorway of a darkened house just before midnight on Friday night. "Help me! Help me!" she yelled, banging on the door of a stranger's house. Seconds later, a point-blank shotgun blast killed her. Some 19 hours later, the murder case took a bizarre turn when the only suspect--the victim's ex-boyfriend and the father of her child--set himself afire in a car near Victorville while being pursued by California Highway Patrol officers.
