Gray Davis: Earthling
I have tried not to mock California too much during this whole recall thing (what with my own state having not exactly a grand collection of brilliant lawmakers at the government level) - but one can sort of feel for them right now, trying to defend democracy against this recall stupidity while at the same time having to deal with this:
Davis answered some questions with personal
stories, including one about his ill mother, and
with apt anecdotes from the past, but, surprisingly,
he got caught up when someone asked him to
explain his "vision for the state."
"My vision is to make the most diverse state on
earth, and we have people from every planet on
the earth in this state. We have the sons and
daughters of every, of people from every planet,
of every country on earth," he said.
Now, Gov. Davis could have just been really fatigued (as the article implies) when he said this. However, I tend to think that his vision for his state may be pretty accurate, after all, it's California we're talking about here ... (badump bump).
(shout out to Dad, who gave me the heads-up on this one)
