All i can say is wow
desperate times call for desperate measures.



The US state of California is holding a garage sale in an attempt to raise some much needed money to help balance its budget. Billed as 'The Great California Garage Sale', the state is using eBay and Craigslist to sell 6,000 surplus items ranging from cars to coat racks, computers to binoculars and jewellery. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is even autographing the sun visors of used cars being sold by the state to help boost their price. He says Californians and people from other states and around the world can take part in the garage sale, helping to raise money. California has a budget deficit of almost $31 billion.

I guess Arny is past the days when he could bench press his way to success.
Garage sales are popular in times like this.....it's a good idea but not original, and it's nice to see the gov. forced to live like the rest of us in some small way.

Nice....I could have fun with a good used autographed Hummer if I can get it at a garage sale price.
