Re "Editorial: An incomplete victory for equal rights" (The Swarm, June 26): The Supreme Court ruling on Proposition 8 exposes a flaw in our California initiative process.
Justice Anthony Kennedy agrees in his dissent. The issue is not that an initiative should have no review merely because the majority approved it. Just the opposite. It must be allowed a complete review, especially when a trial court strikes it down. Change the issue, the sides, the politics, the administration, the majority. This will happen again. The result is a continuing erosion of confidence in our initiative process. Forget the shell game. Next time just give the issue to the U. S. District Court and save all the ballot ink.
