I’m not shocked that Arnold Schwarzenegger is governor. I’m just surprised that it wasn’t Flori-duh that elected him.
The Governator signed an anti-paparazzi bill to permit lawsuits against media outlets if they pay for and make use of photos taken by paparazzi. Brilliant. Since 30 annoying fucking rich people don’t want their picture taken, unless it is on their terms, the rest of us get to watch the First Amendment get whittled down. I got a few words for the whiny celebrities. You rushed to the spotlight. Don’t bitch when it burns your eyes.
A better law would have given celebrities immunity from civil suits if they kick the crap out of paparazzi. Or better yet, anyone who buys a tabloid magazine can be immediately forcibly sterilized.
