OK. I’m going to be brief today. Vote No on Ohio Issue 2.
As I’ve mentioned in this space previously, I’ve already voted via absentee ballot. I’ll stand with the teachers, firefighters, cops and nurses on this issue. But I don’t stand in a queue these days to do much of anything. So I’m a happy camper this morning not having to drive anywhere to vote.
But if you are waiting in line to vote, here are two articles that might help inform your vote on Issue 2.
First, here’s a signed editorial in the NYT, “In Ohio, a Hint About 2012.”
Second, an op-ed in the NYT this morning by Joe Nocera, “Teaching With the Enemy.”
Ohio has been racing to the bottom for at least two decades. A yes vote on Issue 2 does nothing but accelerate that slide.
