Wimpy Tuesday

The Los Angeles Times reported today that California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will sign the state budget Tuesday, a full 85 days late.

Considering the 80,000 unpaid state bills that have accumulated during that time, among other things, what better day of the week than Tuesday to sign it?

Much as J Wellington Wimpy embodied the antithesis of the tough characters California's governor has portrayed on film, Wimpy often found himself in financial straits similar to those Arnold is in now. And, as Wimpy so famously stated:

"I'd gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today"
