A VISIT FROM THE GOVERNATOR ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!
It was do or dye at 7th and Montana this morning as California State Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger made the scene to get a quick haircut at the Salon Montana West, followed by breakfast across from Our Favorite Starbucks. Reactions from the crowd were varied. "There he is," cried Phony Malone, the Local Oddball known for his strange fixation on long-range weapons and his striking resemblance to Mr. Clean, "He's leaving the Salon. Now's my chance!" Phony ran into the middle of 7th Street, intercepted Schwarzenegger and yelled, "Hey, Arnold, do you have a minute?!?" "Not really!" replied Schwarzenegger, as a Secret Service Agent brushed Phony aside. I fared a little better. Arnold gave me a quick thumbs-up and posed for a blog shot. Unfortunately, I cut off half his body. Oh, well, I guess that's only appropriate given the current condition of the California state budget ...!
