Ward Connerly wins in Michigan 

According to this morning's New York Times, the initiative to end affirmative action in public university admissions there can be placed on the ballot. This comes after a lower court ruling that threw the initiative off the ballot due to language "improperly worded and likely to confuse voters." Proponents however think the initiative might be too late to be placed on the 2004 ballot and may instead wait for 2006, since they had to suspend collecting the 317,000 signatures needed until now. Opponents say they will appeal to the state Supreme Court.
