A Rare Case of Money not Buying an Election

It's good to see that money doesn't always buy election victories. A real-estate developing company spent $1.2 million dollars trying to get Measure B passed in Alameda which would have allowed them to develop the former Naval Air Station there. The No on B camp spent just $50,000. But the "No"s won with 85% of the vote.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
