Here is an excerpt:
There was a special election in Los Angeles County last week. Didn't know? Didn't vote? Didn't care?
Well, you're in the majority. Less than 9% of registered voters in the 54th Assembly District bothered to show up at the polls or mail in ballots. Angelenos, a generally disunited bunch, coalesced around apathy. But what does it say about us that the one thing we can agree on is indifference?
The appalling turnout last week is a symptom of a much larger problem.
