We're having another election. Like we had nothing better to do with all that
money. I thought about filing to run for governor, but I so hate to do that
which is trendy....

At least if Arnie gets elected you will have a relatively intelligent and
articulate governer for the first time in decades.
Pity he will inherit a totally bankrupt economy.

Best line so far from one of the in***bents - "He has no political
experience!"

This complaint was made after Californiahas almost been bankrupted by
people with a great deal of political experience.

To have done to the sixth largest economy in the world what Governor
Gray Davis has done doesn't merit a recall vote; it cries out for a
firing squad.

My niece in New York sent me an email yesterday telling me I shouldn't vote for
Arnie, and should vote for Ariana Huffington. I guess she heard the woman
speak at college recently.

Maybe I should start a poll: who should Melin vote for?

PLEASE, don't vote for Arianna. I can't stand her grating voice and accent.
Not only that, she's the one who started the anti-SUV advertising campaign,
as if it's any of her damn business what people chosed to buy and drive.
She'd be way to much of a statist. Of course, some people like that sort of
thing where the politicians take big chunks of the private sector under
their control. Not me !! Get the government the hell out of my life !!
The Davis matter is but one example of how they manage to f*ck things up in
the process.

08-11-03 09:30 AM EST | COMMERCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--99 Cents
Only Stores announces its honorary spokesperson Mathilda Karel Spak,
who is over 99 years old, filed to run in the October 7, 2003
Californian Gubernatorial Recall Election.

Certain 99 Cents Only Stores shareholders paid the $3499.99 filing fee
and helped gather the signatures needed for Mathilda. About 99
signatures were submitted.

Mathilda is believed to be the oldest person ever to run for Governor
in the United States. She will turn 101 on September 5, 2003. Mathilda
was appointed 99 Cents Only Stores honorary spokesperson and
"ambassador for life" when she turned 99 in 2001.

Widowed at a young age, Mathilda persevered to graduate with a
business degree from Northwestern University. Mathilda went on to
build a successful career in insurance and real estate during the
1930's-50's, before retiring at age 58 in 1960.

Mathilda has been a lifelong volunteer for many worthwhile charities
and non-profits. She currently works four days a week as a hospital
and senior center volunteer and devotes the majority of the rest of
her week to helping charitable organizations.

Eric Schiffer, president of 99 Cents Only Stores said, "Mathilda, who
has been featured in People Magazine for her heroic lifelong
volunteering efforts, is a truly remarkable person. Mathilda is an
ideal candidate as she is bright, energetic, compassionate and
generous. She strongly believes in giving back to the community. Also,
Mathilda knows the value of a dollar, I mean 99 cents!"

Mathilda Karel Spak will make her first official public campaign
appearance at 7 a.m. on Thursday August 21 at the grand opening of the
newest 99 Cents Only Stores in Lynwood, California.

99 Cents Only Stores(R) is the nation's oldest existing one-price
retailer. 99 Cents Only Stores emphasizes name-brand consumables at an
excellent value, in its 167 clean, attractively merchandised stores
located in California, Nevada, Arizona and Texas. The company's New
York Stock Exchange symbol is NDN.

Arnie is almost the perfect candidate for you - he was born four years
after the war; too late to join the Party; but his dad was a Nazi!

You just know they did this for the dear old lady and not for the
publicity!

It's so touching... I wonder how much they'd sell her for if I
promised to feed her regularly and keep her in a warm, dry stall?
