Schwarzenegger's thumbs up

About a week ago I read that Cavaco Silva, competing for Presidency in Portugal, suggested that Portugal could become the next California of Europe. My first reaction was to chortle. My second was to start imagining it.

But today I knew that despite any fantasies I might have had, I could never ever live in California. I could never ever live somewhere where it was legal for the state to kill a man (for whatever reason). And I could never ever live in a place where a politician - someone who depends on popular votes for his position of power - has the last say in whether or not someone should die.
