  • “Ich bin ein Cal-eee-fornian.”

    October 3, 2003: Well, for the first time in my life, I voted for a Republican. Sure, a socially liberal Republican, but a Republican, all the same! Folks outside of Cal-eee-fornia can't totally understand the way outgoing! Governor Davis goaded us into this: Rolling Blackouts. Budget Battles. Unemployment. Businesses Fleeing.
