They put a lot of disposable income in people's pockets...  They
generated a restaurant boom.  California cuisine was created, smoked
salmon and arugula.  It's perfectly clear what happened.  People were
eating their children.
	-- Robert Hass, Poet Laureate of the United States, talks about
	   the California property tax rollbacks of the late 70's and
	   their impact on school funding.  [quoted in The New York Times
	   (National Edition), 9 December 1996, pp.  A11]
