Hollywood Story: Today's the day of the California recall. I've been tired of this whole thing since it started. I only wish that this would finally be the end of it. But I think we all know better.

If Gov. Davis is recalled, he gets about a month to hang around while the votes are certified. That would give the new chief executive time to at least take a tour of the statehouse. But it also means that this circus will linger for another few weeks.

And that's not even counting the lawsuits, recounts, and what-have-you that we'll see after election day.

I can't help but feel sorry for Californians. Not only is their state budget a mess, but now it looks like they are left with a choice of either A) reaffirming the governor who caused most of the mess, or B) picking an actor with no political experience who declined previous opportunities to run for governor and only ran when the election schedule was squished so tightly that he wouldn't have to face a real campaign. Oh, and he would only participate in a debate where the questions were provided to him beforehand.

If I've ever seen a case for political apathy, this is it. Good luck, California.
