So, last night (this morning) at approximately 3 am I gave a call to action to call your legislators regarding the Recycling Funds and SB 402 and today I took my own advice and called Assemblymember Jim Beall's Office. I had a great conversation with a leg. aide who was in charge of environmental issues regarding my concerns and requested support of a reintroduction or a gut and amend action.

We began to talk a little bit about our disappointment with the veto letter and he joked; "At least there was no hidden profanity in it." I laughed.

For those who don't know, back in October a controversial veto letter to Assemblyman Tom Ammiano of San Francisco had an acrostic spelling out a four lettered profanity starting with the letter F followed by "you." In other words, reading down the page, the first letter of each line read out "F--- you." There were articles about it and speculation on the reasons (perhaps as retaliation for a heckling the Gov. at an event and screaming out "kiss my gay ass") but the more hilarious rip on the governor comes from "news"/talkshow host Steven Colbert in his "Alpha Dog of the Week" segment.

As if the "girlie man" comments or the fact that he has created debacle after debacle weren't enough, this action furthers the belief that California Politics is a joke. Way to gov Gov'nator. Way to go.
