You embodied everything that I want in a man,” Crawley told Moss the next night. “I’m just so in love with the man that you are.”He then explained his love for her. “From the moment I stepped out of the limo, this was special,” he said. “I know without the shadow of a doubt that you would go to the end of the world for me and I’ve never had that. I’m so grateful for that. … I’ve thought a lot about my mother and what she would think about you. She would absolutely love you. All she’s ever wanted for me is someone who loves me unconditionally and who would be there for me no matter what. I know that I have that. And I love you.”She then whispered, “I love you too. … The best is yet to come,” before he got down on one knee to propose. “Put that ring on my finger, I’ve waited a lot of years for this,” she said. When he did, she then called herself “Clare Moss.”Clare Crawley’s engagement ring on ‘The Bachelorette’.

You’re all set! While Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger campaigned up and down the state last fall for his reform measures, he stressed the importance of Proposition 76 – a very modest restraint on state spending – by saying California needed more: more water, more energy, more schools, more of everything. Few observers made note of the seeming contradiction between slowing the growth in state spending and the need to pay for additional construction programs. Now that his plan for $68 billion in new bonds to fund infrastructure has been fully revealed, the intent of his earlier remarks is clear. By reducing the growth in autopilot spending that has shackled the state with an ongoing structural deficit, Schwarzenegger hoped to free up budget money for infrastructure improvements, as well as restore the state’s credit rating, which is currently in the cellar, so that bonds could be approved at a reasonably inexpensive rate of interest. Although voters rejected Schwarzenegger’s reform plans, he is pressing ahead with new debt and spending. Perhaps the blow of his special-election losses has been softened by the fact that an improving economy is generating what is likely to be a one-time state surplus. Even though an analysis by Elizabeth Hill, the state’s legislative analyst, concludes that next year California will return to the structural deficit conditions created by the disgraced Gray Davis and his big-spending allies in the Legislature, the current governor and lawmakers are already discussing how to spend the additional revenues on program expansion. Schwarzenegger deserves some credit for acknowledging a genuine need to overcome years of neglect of the state’s facilities and infrastructure and for his desire to build for the future. The fact that he has broken up his spending plan into increments over a number of election cycles will be appreciated by voters, who can focus on the merits of each individual program, rather than having to approve one giant “Christmas tree” hung with myriad projects, artfully designed to distract the eye from careful evaluation.

What will assure that taxpayers will be getting good value for their money? Even these incremental bonds, like an elephant cut out of a herd, are still huge and hard to thoroughly examine. Taxpayers would feel more comfortable knowing that monies will be spent where promised. Flood-control money should go to flood control and not to open-space purchase or other unrelated programs, which should be voted on separately. Money for highways should go to highways, and not to bullet trains. Once programs are funded, taxpayers should receive assurance that they are being built in the most economical manner possible, including the use of private contractors where warranted. Taxpayers will continue to be skeptical until all of the details are revealed, and maybe even after that. We can only hope that the governor and the Legislature, looking at an election year, do not decide to use the temporary surplus to ignore the state’s ongoing budget problems, so they feel free to promise more to everyone, from program expansions to a building plan that would make the pharaohs blush. If they chose this shortsighted approach, they are just whistling by the graveyard, where the reputations of Gray Davis and his fellow big spenders are buried.
