Michael is every where and I know this to be true. I go door to door and believe me he is at two out of three homes. If he only knew this when he was alive, I believe things would have been different for him. Oh well California is 24 billion dollars in the hole and after the first of July we did not lose the waves the sunshine or the dry sand in the desert. And we still got decent air and a pretty good sunset and yes we are still paying taxes. Arnie will try to make up the difference by cutting a few days a month and lowering employee hours - yeah right, it's gonna git worse that's right the ship is sinking and its about time we start thinking out of the box. We as Californian's live in the most sought after state in the world, that's right the world. Our real estate is the most envied and talked about in the world - We have the greatest weather, the most beautiful women, the most powerful and richest people, we are also the most racially diverse, we have the most gangs, the most gays, and probably the most dog owners and yeah appearance has a lot of meaning. Again this may sound crazy but its not, the state should get into retail and pick up sponsors for the cities and yes I can see a Nike Swoosh on a police car or a Coca Cola logo on lottery tickets there is no car on the planet that gets noticed more than a cop car. This kind of advertisement is better than a half hour at a superbowl. And should be priced accordingly I,m talking billions and don't stop there why not clothing,jewelry, and get some stars involved too " Hey Arnie" call some of ya buddies and get us out of the red and keep our schools and libraries open.
