An Advisory for California’s Capitol Readers…

(Editor’s Note: In a recent post sparked by the first gubernatorial debate between Republican Meg Whitman and Democrat Jerry Brown, the chief correspondent of California’s Capitol chose to explicate the phrase “boil the ocean” which Candidate Whitman used in one of her answers. Highlighting this phrase with a post of its own seems excessive since anyone who has followed Candidate Whitman’s campaign knows she uses this phrase with callous regularity. Rather than place a letter in the chief correspondent’s employment file, management has elected to merely chide him. This reduction in data storage also assists management in improving the bottom-line, helping to enable the hiring of another, potentially more gifted, correspondent.)

  2. I liked it- Haddn’t heard the pharse! Or an explantation for what it meant! More from the corespondent!

  3. Please, no letter in the chief correspondent’s file. Just flog him with an organic carrot and make him eat a tofu burger. Oooommmmm.
