California Recall wrap-up

Well, my prediction of 57% for recall was very close (looks like around 55% now) but I way underestimated the depth and width and girth and height and density of disaffection for Gray Davis and his L.T. Bustamante, who were thoroughly whacked at the polls.

My advice for Arnold: act swiftly and decisively, even to the point of recklessness. Slash spending at every turn. Put state workers on a four-day workweek. Raise tuition at UCLA. California's bonds are in junk status and there's not a chance of squeezing another tax onto Golden State citizens. At the risk of appearing like a Terminator-style villian: do the right thing for California.
