Arnold sends a message

Be careful who you disrespect. Sometimes it comes back to bite you.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger typically attaches a message to bills he signs or vetoes telling lawmakers why he took the action.

A Democratic assemblyman who heckled the governor during a recent event in San Francisco actually received two messages: the veto letter itself and a not-so-subtle rebuke creatively hidden within it.

Like a find-the-word puzzle, the second message was visible by stringing together the first letter of each line down the left-hand margin. It consisted of a common four-letter vulgarity followed by the letters "y-o-u."

"My goodness. What a coincidence," said Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear. "I suppose when you do so many vetoes, something like this is bound to happen."
Read the rest here.

Not terribly classy. But sometimes rude people need to be put in their place. This will probably have to do since modern society has lost the fine art of the Social Cut.

There is no need for California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to waist time by attaching messages -- including some in poor taste -- to bills he signs or vetoes.

California has too many problems -- especially fiscal problems -- for its Governor to waist precious time that could be used to enhance the status of that state.
