Has Jerry Brown finally bitten off more than he can chew? No recent governor has gotten the state's voters to accept reality and raise taxes. Brown's campaigning like a dynamo for Proposition 30, but what happens to his job--and to the state--if it fails? Marc Cooper reports for SN&R.

In Frontlines this week, Darwin BondGraham says, "Meet Proposition 32. New lipstick, old pig." In Capitol Lowdon, Greg Lucas mulls over the in-between state of the state's independent voters, and in Bites, Cosmo Garvin explains why the race for the SMUD Board is important--and who's running for a spot on it.

In Arts&Culture, Kel Munger assures us that at Imperial Silence: Una opera muerta, if the fat lady sings, her bones will rattle. She talks to John Jota Leaños, the creator of the multimedia, Day of the Dead-inspired spectacle. Also: Ngaio Bealum profiles Massive Delicious in Music; Patti Roberts raves over a steamin' steampunking version of The Rocky Horror Show; and Jonathan Kiefer says that Cloud Atlas is cloudy, with a chance of confusion.
