‘Total Recall’ takes on new meaning

Announcement board on USS Midway, San Diego

Announcement board on USS Midway, San Diego

I toured the USS Midway museum in San Diego on Tuesday and laughed out loud when I saw this period announcement board in one of the exhibits of a crew lounge: “Tonight’s movie: Total Recall with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone.”

That’s probably what the California Correctional Peace Officers Association has in mind with its recall petition targeting Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

(I highly recommend a visit to the Midway, a remarkably restored aircraft carrier. We spent a few days sailing in San Diego — a post-convention break — and had extra time before we had to catch our plane. Plan to spend at least two or three hours at the ship.)
