To the editor:

When faced with a difficult decision, like how to vote on Measure 49, sometimes it helps to just look at the big picture and not get hung up in all the details.

Scientists actually have a name for this, they call it "thin slicing." Studies show that when a person uses this method, the vast majority of the time that decision turns out to be the best one.

The big picture on Measure 49 is it completely changes something that the voters of Oregon approved by large majorities — twice.

Vote NO on Measure 49.
