The two sides of Ahnold ...
First the good side. In a story on Yahoo! News, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has decided to sidestep the politics and go direct to the voters, holding a special election to overhaul the state. But then just as I read something that makes me think maybe the voters of California were right to vote the Governator into office, I read another Yahoo! News story that says the Governor's office is using Bush-esque techniques creating media. Basically, Schwarzenegger wanted some Labor Laws changed, so he created "fake news" reports to explain why the changes are good. Did someone call George Orwell?
