Kah-li-for-ni-ah's Recent Addition
It's here! It's here! A proud day for us all it was. Yesterday, January 31, 2005, saw the official release of the California State Quarter. While the Governator took a break from his pectoral workout and groping to partake in a glorious ceremony, those of us who are nerdy enough to get exscited over our own state's quarter release readied our maps--be they fold-out, glass-covered, relief, or felt (collectible, one and all)--and prepared to carefully inspect our change at coffee bars, post offices, and record stores until the blessed day when we spy in our sweaty palms the face of Half Dome and the kindly, old grandpa-esque image of John Muir, glinting in sun.
