Thanks, I was beginning to doubt my own credibility after noting that it seemed to disappear.

By a 3-0 vote, California's Wildlife Conservation Board approved the land purchases -- totaling nearly $300 million -- without making public the appraisals that were used to justify the sale prices. The Davis administration has routinely refused to release such information in the past, and Davis' acceptance of $163,000 in contributions from the three landowners has raised questions about whether taxpayers are getting a good deal.

Responding to the San Jose Mercury News accounts of the issue, Arnold Schwarzenegger's campaign announced Tuesday that if elected, Schwarzenegger would make appraisals and other key documents public before the state buys open space.
