TOTAL RECALL. Despite last minute dire predictions and an obstructionist democrat smear campaign, the voters both recalled Mr. Davis and elected the Republican immigrant. It is somewhat of a shame that Mr. Davis had to take the fall for the failure of California government. Although he bears responsibility, the legislature does also. The new governor will have to deal with the same old problems of the ineffective legislature. If it were Japan, the might all fall on their swords. In America they tend to "hunker down" and see if they can ride it out.
