This is "economy week" in the Schwarzenegger administration, as Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is staging a series of events around the state designed to call attention to the job growth that has taken place under his watch. Interestingly, his political campaign has launched a TV commercial, being shown in markets that track the governor's personal appearance schedule, also touting economic growth. Press Secretary Margita Thompson, at her weekly briefing this morning with Capitol bureau reporters, insisted there was no political coordination.

The campaign of Treasurer Phil Angelides was quick to distribute an e-mail to political reporters quoting Schwarzenegger from his own 2005 State of the State address: "If a politician tries to take credit for job growth, don't believe it. Ladies and gentlemen, I did not create this record number of jobs.�

No one can blame any governor for bragging about good things that happen while he or she is in office, but a little perspective is in order. As much as Californians like to say their state, if it were a nation, would make up the 5th or 6th largest economy in the world, the fact is that the California economy is very much intertwined with the U.S. economy. Both, after all, use the same currency and tap largely the same markets.

So, some perspective, based on figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Between January 2004 and January 2006, roughly tracking Schwarzenegger's term in office, the size of California's civilian labor force has grown by 1.58 percent. During that same time, New York's also grew by 1.58 percent, Texas' by 3.2 percent, Arizona's by 5.8 percent and Florida's by 5.9 percent.

The U.S. economy is doing well all over. The argument for cause and effect is very difficult for any governor to make.

I must confess that during the last two weeks of that particularly unhinged election spiral, despite the brief mental refreshment I experienced for the Restoring Sanity Rally about Saturday, I have once all over again begun to suss out suitable caves inside the Northwest Territories of Canada to that we can retire and be free from the intellectual and moral potato sack sprint towards bottom that is each of our national political conversation.

" On manque de cars " Une Simca Aronde immatriculée 301 CS 88, stationnée, juste devant, est criblée de balles. Des gens courent en tous sens en hurlant. Dans le désordre qui règne sur le trottoir, j'aperçois sept corps allongés à la terrasse du café, parmi des chaussures, des bérets, des chapeaux et des vêtements, au milieu de flaques d'eau et de sang. Deux Algériens sont couchés sur le côté, inertes, an pied d'un arbre. Ils ont l'air de saigner d'un peu partout. A trois mètres, autour d'une table du bistrot, cinq autres corps sont entassés les uns sur les autres. Deux d'entre eux râlent doucement. Ils l'avaient bien cherché, dit quelqu'un. Il faudrait peut être en transporter à l'hôpital, avance timidement un autre. Si vous croyez que là bas, ils ont pitié des nôtres. Ils étaient armés, dit quelqu'un. C'est eux qui ont tiré sur le fourgon. Permettez, j'étais là. Ils se sauvaient et cherchaient refuge dans les immeubles quand la police a tiré.

Match your style to your business. If you're a tax accountant, you'll probably find a suit and tie to be a more successful look than, say, grunge. There does need to be a certain correspondence between the nature of your look and your occupation. That's not to say that you can't be a flamboyant tax accountant, but chances are, you'll have more success in the entertainment industry than at a Fortune 500 company.

There were times when Mr. Herennottin would sketch as he had done so many times redesigning that awful conductor outfit. His visit had caused him no desire to do anything productive on this ride.

Jared had often been his muse when he needed one. Usually, it was the muse who was coming in for a dress and Walter was used as a tool for the divine to craft such a piece.
