On Friday, The NYTimes ran a profile piece on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. If, like me, you've lost tabs on the guy since he was elected, you should click here to read it.

This was my favorite bit:
On fiscal matters, Mr. Schwarzenegger considers himself an old-school Republican determined to ferret out waste. No item is too minor to escape his attention.

For instance, since Mr. Schwarzenegger took office on Nov. 17, the toilet paper in the Capitol has been switched from two-ply to one-ply, a saving of thousands of dollars over the years. "It's not anymore the two-ply," he said. "Because you know what? We're trimming. We're living within our means."
