As the strains of "America the Beautiful" fell over a crowd just outside, Gray Davis took one last walk as governor down a long hallway to the Capitol's west steps, where on a cool November morning, his public life ended abruptly at 11:20 a.m.

Does a trial and lengthy prison sentence for corruption count as part of his "public career"? Cause if it does, it's not safe to call his career over quite yet.

He never arrived at LAX. I understand he boarded a private Mexican charter jet at Sacramento Airport, and was taken to an undisclosed area in Mexico.

passed into the annals of history ...

Still accurate if you spell it without the extra "n".

Davis refused to criticize Schwarzennegger? WTF? Did these people see that lousy top ten list on David Letterman.

After destroying the state economy and spending $60 million last year to ruin the good name of a decent man, no one should pause for a second to worry about this jerk. He deserves all the humiliation he is feeling, and then some.

"Davis, 60, facing the Pacific and dressed in somber black alongside his wife....

Was this guy even there? Does our fearless reporter even know anything about California? Sacramento is at least 50 -60 miles from the Pacific Ocean.

I dunno, maybe Davis was 'facing the Pacific' in a metaphorical sense...

on an 1811-era Bible

They found a copy of the Bible in Sacramento? How do they know? I'll bet there's nobody in Sacramento politics that can prove it was a Bible.

A few days after the recall, Letterman had Doofus do the Top Ten list. Advice to Arnie. It was a bunch of BS.

Hmmm....No mention of a state supplied security detail for an udetermined time period? No mention of a driver and state Crown Victoria? No mention of appointments to university regency posts? No mention of state provided healthcare for Davis and his family? No mention of a state pension?

How little on subsatnce a written departure piece can be?

davis made fun of Arnold, saying that if you’re going to run for governor of California you should be able to pronounce California correctly. Arnold then replied that if you’re going to be governor of California you should be able to govern it.

There are plenty of Christians working in Sacramento, though the hedonists are in the majority. Most of the Republicans in the legislature are not just good people, but really solid conservatives.

Leftists only *wish* that Davis' career would be over.

From now on they will wince everytime Davis is seen in public, and they will regret every Dollar that Davis raises from Democratic fatcats. He's their anchor, now (and not in a good way).

It was a rhetorical statement. Hyperbole. But, you're right. I stand corrected.

I was wondering how long it would take. :)

I agree. I think the dims are going to distance themselves from davis for some time...at least until after the 2004 election. Even then...will they want to be reminded of his gross failure and the memory of Californians kicking his ass to the curb? I think not.

"... No mention of a state supplied security detail ..."

He ain't worth killing - or wounding - or bruising - or even bothering. Gray is fading, fading to black....

Good riddance.

No bias in the media at all when it came to all those last minute appointments. Kind of like those despicable mines left behind by slick willie.

Guess that's better than a tie-dyed T-shirt and headband..isn't it?

Oh I don't know. Davis always looked like an alien to me in the et sense. Maybe the mothership will be passing by to pick him up soon.
