From the SoCal Law Blog (a site that really, really needs to work on its compatibility with Safari... same goes for you, L.A. Business Journal), an update on Seal-gate. Supervisor Mike Antonovich is trying to petition the county to put the issue to the voters this fall - a ballot item that is sure to provoke, um, reasoned debate all around the county. Commenter (and local blogger) Cobb reports that the petition has 125K signatures... I didn't major in mathematics, but it seems that they'll need about 50,000 more by Friday if they want to qualify for the November election.

Will these defenders of the cross take a page from the Darrell Issa playbook, and pay a bunch of people to hit the bricks and finish the job? We'll keep you updated.
