I'm not suggesting that we go back to pre-Prop. 13 laws -- only that we need to kill the failed experiment and come up with something that works. Our property tax system is blatantly unfair, as commenter Jane Powell rightly pointed out in my previous post. Moreover, Prop. 13 destroyed our public schools, which were once the envy of the nation. Most of the rest of the country has nothing like Prop. 13, so what's our problem?
