s, just as "liberals" like Hilary C have. I can't vote for Simon, but it might be worth seeing Davis founder just to keep him from taking up space on the Dem presidential ticket some years from now. LAex's design for Cali's quarter is a winner, though.

The first Republican I ever voted for in my life was Tom Campbell for Senate. When Riordan looked to be a shoe-in for the Rupublican nomination, I faced existential terror at the damning prospect of knowing that I was going to vote Republican in 2 straight state elections. Fortunately, Bill Simon has saved me from that awful fate.

I'm still not voting for Gray, though, which I guess means I'm STILL not voting Republican.

I will pick my 3rd party candidate from the statements in the voter pamphlet. Gray will win anyway, but the margin of his win will affect his Presidential chances. People who do not vote are considered by TPTB -wrongly- to be satisfied with the status quo. 3rd party voters are considered disgruntled, which is what I am.

Why waste a vote on the status quo? Isn't that why you voted for Nader? I mean sure, you've chronicaled how Nader and his most vocal supporters are both upset and in denial about the results of that effort, but how about you? Are you really sad about how that turned out?

This Democrat would happily vote Riordan. In fact, I just might write him in.

Dick Riordan would certainly get my vote over the Honorable Governor of the Great State of California. Mr. Davis has signed a bunch of bills that have really pissed me off, and as a second termer (lame duck) would doubtless sign many more. At least Mr. Riordan would shake things up in that most horrific of places --- Sacramento.

Your pal,


Can we talk about Southern California secession now?
