Kah-li-fornia or Bust.

It seems that Governor Terminator is trying to steal our business. According to the Boston Herald:

California officials have come to the Bay State looking to lure away our business. But so far all they've done is put money in the coffers of the billboard industry.
As part of a national campaign, the Sunshine State's movie star governor put his face on billboards inviting businesses to move west.
``California wants your business,'' reads the East Boston sign with a picture of a T-shirt clad Arnold Schwarzenegger. ``Actually, he says `Kah-li-fornia.' ''
The Terminator has promised to personally help businesses coming to California. Last week, he even showed up in La Verne, Calif., to help a plastic sign printing company unpack the last of its boxes from Nevada.
``California is getting its act together,'' he said in welcoming the Lynch Sign Co.
But so far, no Bay State businesses have taken him up on the offer, California economic development officials say.
