MARK STEYN WEIGHS IN on the Gray Davis recall campaign:

The last time I discussed California’s government in these pages was when their attorney general wanted to introduce Ken Lay, the then Enron boss, to the benefits of California justice. “I would love,” said Bill Lockyer, “to personally escort Lay to an 8 x 10 cell that he could share with a tattooed dude who says, ‘Hi, my name is Spike, honey’.”

In those days, Mr Lockyer and his Democratic colleagues were still doing a passable job of blaming everybody else for the state’s woes. Now, alas, voters seem inclined to believe that what the attorney general wanted Spike to do to Mr Lay, the state government has done to them, and very comprehensively.
