California Not Seceding After All

Well, looks like Californians won't be donning gray uniforms and replacing the bear flag with the stars and bars.  Initiative 17-0005, filed by Cindy Sheehan et al., has failed to qualify.  The AG's summary of the initiative, minus the cost part, is:

Repeals provision in California Constitution stating California is an inseparable part of the United States. Directs Governor, in consultation with those members of Congress who represent California, to negotiate continually greater autonomy from federal government, up to and including agreement establishing California as a fully independent country, provided voters agree to revise the California Constitution. Creates new state commission to research and make recommendations on ways of increasing California's autonomy and independence.
I'm so relieved.
