Join the Meserves



He's back, baby!

Former Arcata City Councilmember Dave Meserve has written up a citizen's initiative that would completely ban all military recruiting targeting minors [Thx, Shane!] within the Arcata city limits. He's calling it the "Arcata Youth Protection Act," and he hopes to get it on the November ballot.

Will he be able to gather the signatures of 1,500 registered Arcata voters by June? Certainly. Will it make a big media sensation, perhaps earning Dave another guest appearance on the Fox News Channel (where he has surely been missed)? Most likely. Will it pass? Of course.

Will it hold up in court? I take leave to doubt it. Paging Shane Brinton ...

Here's the press release (.doc).
