Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa yesterday for a campaign fundraiser with his big green and orange RV.
Last night I had coffee with a friend that attended the event, and my buddy was saying that Schwarzenegger told the crowd that he wanted to see cranes all over the State of California.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The birds?Ã¢â‚¬Â I asked.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“NoÃ¢â‚¬Â¦stupid,Ã¢â‚¬Â my friend said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“A machine for hoisting heavy objects?Ã¢â‚¬Â
My friend thought that I was being a smartass, but I truthfully couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t understand why the Governor would want to see either type of crane all over the state. As a person that depends too heavily on the not so fluid under construction 22 freeway, I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t understand why any politician would announce amusement in having more in-progress construction projects.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Maybe he meant Ken Crane storesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦you know, that place that sells audio equipment.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“No, idiot. He meant that he wanted to see more development in California.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Well I still think it would be funny to see those heron-like birds walking around like stray cats.[OC Register article] [Ken Crane Audio] [Cranes @ Wikipedia]
