Apparently California voters like that Destiny's Child greatest hits CD and voted No, No No at the polls yesterday. While locally we can look to new City Council members and further funding for LAUSD building needs as victories of voter will, where does our Governor go from here? He's been humbled by the experience and, it seems, crippled as well. He's made enemies of not only the state legislature but of organized labor who now has a villain to motivate its constituency with. His early opponent for the next gubernatorial election, Phil Angelides, is already using the crushing defeat yesterday as a launching point for his campaign. And while Schwarzenegger wasn't exactly contrite last night, his apology to his family for being away and for the attack ads made it seem like he was a little tired of playing politics and maybe wanted to pack it in and head home.

Spending $25 million dollars of his own money in just a little over 18 months for political purposes probably isn't sitting too well with him either.

Come back to Hollywood, Arnie. If Stallone can make more Rocky and Rambo movies, we're sure there's a franchise or two you could come back to. And we're not even trying to make a bad pun when we tell you that we'd love to see a sequel to Total Recall.
