There's only one ballot measure San Franciscans are sure to be voting on this November: a ban on circumcision.
Department of Elections officials today certified that the fellows who call themselves "intactivists" did indeed persuade enough city voters to sign their petition making circumcision on anybody under 18 a misdemeanor, even for religious reasons. It would be punishable by a $1,000 fine and up to a year in jail.
The petitioners cleared the cut-off point by inches. (Consider yourself warned: We'll be making these jokes for months.) They needed 7,168 signatures and got 7,743.
Supporters of a ban say it's a cruel, unnecessary practice akin to cutting off a baby's ear or nose. Opponents say the ban, even if passed by voters, would never hold up in court.
Unfortunately for supporters, they tipped their hand:

Re: From that hotbed of conservatism: the "City by the Bay"
This will certainly be an interesting ballot. thanks "Inactivists"...I'd really appreciate you doing something constructive with your petitions....
Tends to be a pretty active population of 700k here in the glorioius city by the bay. A few years ago, activists got calling the Sewage Treatment plant on Ocean beach the "George W. Bush Sewage treatment plant"
It didn't pass..
But the ballot explanation was classic. Voting FOR it you were stating that no other landmark best described out president better tha one that a bunch oif crap flows through. Voting AGAINST it asked why should we give something that actually does good the name of our worst president.
the voters out here are certainly informed, this will not pass.
