The LA Times gets uncharacteristically carried away reporting Arnold Schwarzenegger’s big day Monday inaugurating the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy:
He received a standing ovation as he stepped onto the stage in an auditorium on campus for the start of a daylong symposium — the inaugural session of the augustly named USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy.
Gone was any evidence of the disaffection that he had accrued after seven years as governor. Gone was the shadow cast for his commuting the murder sentence of a friend's son. Gone was the outrage over the news last year of his affair — and fathering a child — with a member of his household staff.
The piece goes on to say Arnold hopes to bring “his Alpha-Dog personality to bear on the stickiest problems of the time”—in the vein of his “Terminator 2” movie as a cyborg assassin. And yes, the folks at USC have given him an endowed chair and are calling him Professor Schwarzenegger.
