I appreciate the efforts — here, here, and here — to lay out, as plainly as possible, the true costs of Proposition 1.

However, as we learned last time, the truth is that the general public has absolutely no idea how much this thing costs. Exit polls last year showed that only 5% of the electorate knew that the cost was between $10 and $100 billion per year. [oops — I guess I’m no better than rest of the electorate!]

Prop 1.’s apparent stealth strategy of flying below the radar seems to be working pretty well thusfar. I’d rather talk about how awful I-985 is, and how it’s totally going to screw up traffic planning in the state.
