"State" is an anagram of "Taste." Posted on 01/06/2003.

The public is being encouraged to vote for the back of the new California state quarter. Remember--these are the finalists. (It makes me worry about who didn't make the cut). Still, there are a few decent designs. Vote for one of them.

The horror, the horror...

Seriously, thanks for notifying me of that vote. My god, that field of candidates is just as sad and inspires nose-holding as much as voting in the General Election!
