Arnold who?

Just kidding... I wish him all the best. Hell, we all wish him well, we're the ones who gotta live with him as governor.

Axe that car tax tripling and repeal SB 60 for starters, Mr. S!

Wrote this after recall.

Dance

There comes a time in all our lives,
We have to take a chance.
Some will sit and hear the song,
While others have to dance.
His time has come the floor is clear,
He hears the beat so clearly.
He takes Maria’s anxious hand,
And leads her out so dearly.
He spins, he twirls, while she hangs on,
The floor is truly theirs.
It seems as if the Lord has answered,
All of Arnold’s Prayers.
Since Ron and Nancy there has been,
No one in town that’s bigger.
Than Arnold and Maria are,
Hooray for Schwarzenegger

Meter and rhyming sylable. "GER" Pronounced "GRR". "One that's big ger" = 4 sylables, as does, "Schwar zen eg ger".

If the whole word had to rhyme you'd have to make up a word. Sheesh, gimme a break, OK ; )

We're off and running with a tree hugger in charge of EVP up there. Thank you so much, Guv. I wonder if he'll try to convince Mr. Schwarzenegger that the overabundance of trees and underlying brush were not a very large part of the fires in California. On the other hand, that guy's counterpart is a member of the timber industry. I'll bet that at least a few of their upcoming get-togethers will be interesting.

Even for something this important, they can't find a pic of Maria that doesn't resemble Skeletor. Buy this chick a sandwich, somebody!

I would like to say that the kids are well-dressed in appropriate attire, and seem happy and normal types of kids.

This is so cool. I can't stay on the thread because I have a hair appointment, but hope I can catch his speech in the car.

Fox News talks over EVERYTHING! They drive me nuts when they do that. Even when President Bush is speaking they feel they have to tell us who it is. Just plain crazy.

Ummmm... there isn't much history of a recalled governor showing up to his successor's inauguration. They're making history/traditions here.

Deukmejian looks great (he's 76)
