The Things People Vote For

Emily noticed this last night, while reading our mail-in ballots (you might want to click the image to see the full-size):

Read that carefully.  It says:

Initiated Ordinance 300

Shall the voters for the City and County of Denver adopt an Initiated Ordinance to require the creation of an extraterrestrial affairs commission to help ensure the health, safety, and cultural awareness of Denver residents and visitors in relation to potential encounters or interactions with extraterrestrial intelligent beings or their vehicles, and fund such commission from grants, gifts and donations?

That’s right, the voters of Denver have asked for this measure to be on the ballot (see the WSJ article here).
