Issue 3 in Ohio was a sleeper - there was almost no campaigning on it and literally half of the voters didn't know anyting about it. The ballot language made it sound like it was intended to increase the availability of healthcare insurance. It's passage means nothing.

"Hsu" is pronounced /shoo/, or probably more like /shyoo/. It's modern (i.e. Pinyin) spelling would be "Xu".

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
