As governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger has the privilege of picking California's commemorative state quarter. I blogged about it in a panic last fall sometime. Were you worried what design he would pick for the state quarter? What?! No?? You say you thought it was a trivial issue in times like these? Well, a lot you know. A state's quarter is looked at by the whole world. We'll be judged by our quarter. If California were saddled with a silly-looking art deco quarter, our credit rating would go right down the toilet. And it is Arnold we're talking about here.
But fear not. Good taste prevailed.
I credit Maria.
