Abolishing the Senate... not ours, though

The State of Maine is moving toward abolishing the upper house of its state legislature. It would join Nebraska, currently the only state without a state senate. [Later: no, actually the proposal died.] The discussion here, on a liberal American blog, is interesting, with some reference to Canadian provinces that did away with their upper houses long ago, and some attention to the principle behind upper houses.
