Bashing Arabs and Muslims is the Hollywood wave of the past, the present, and who knows how far into the future. The image--the false image--held by most Americans is a result of selective reporting by the news media (because bad news is what sells), which is then exploited by the entertainment media (because movies need villains). That's how we, and our kids, learn what Arabs and Muslims look like and how they behave.

Arnold Schwarzenegger still wears a symbol of his seven-year Sacramento adventure — it's hard to miss the heavy ring on his right hand that bears the California flag — but the 63-year-old private citizen said he now yearns for his old Hollywood firepower. "I can step very comfortably into the entertainment world and do an action movie with the same violence that I've always done," Schwarzenegger said in an interview this week. "I can have the same amount of heads coming off — and any other body parts — and as far as that goes, I don't blink.

Andres Martinez missed a crucial point in his Feb. 9 commentary, "A Natural for the White House." Arnold Schwarzenegger holds dual citizenship with Austria, his country of birth, and the United States of America, his chosen place of residence to earn mega-millions. Schwarzenegger can't have it both ways and have the Constitution amended so he can run for president of this country. Schwarzenegger can run for Dianne Feinstein's Senate seat if he's so inclined, but to amend the Constitution for just this one man?

Hasta La Vista, Governorship?: Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to terminate any notion that he's bucking for political office. In an interview to promote the release of "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," the actor said that he has no personal political ambitions despite his muscular support for President Bush's physical fitness programs. "Why would I run for office?" Schwarzenegger asked. "The most important thing for me right now is to make America healthy."

Although the U.S. took a page from Arnold Schwarzenegger's script, quoting "The Terminator" in attacking Cuba's communist government, the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday voted for the 12th year against Washington's 4-decade-old economic embargo on Cuba. Addressing the assembly before the symbolic annual vote, U.S. representative Sichan Siv said that "Cuba's best day is when the Cuban people have terminated Castro's evil, communist, dictatorial regime, and said to him, 'Hasta la vista, baby!'

It astounds one to realize that several near-global wars have occurred; invasions of countries made; spewing of lava, hurricanes, flash floods and famines have come and gone in the past three years and still Proposition 103 just sits there--correction--lies there without any action. Is it tainted with leprosy or so unbelievably untouchable that the Legislature refuses to act upon it? "Drive defensively," says the DMV manual. Better to "elect defensively" and put in legislators capable of following the mandate of the voters.

Mike Schmidt, who hit 548 home runs with the Philadelphia Phillies before he retired in 1989, is getting frustrated with his post-baseball life. Schmidt tried broadcasting but it didn't last, he was turned down when he offered to coach the Phillies, and he made an unsuccessful bid to invest in the major league franchise in Miami. "What am I good for?," he asked. "I'm getting tired of doing the same thing every day. Do I have to do it the rest of my life?

First Arnold Schwarzenegger. Now me. Arnold drives a Hummer (also known as a Humvee). I drove a Hummer (also known as a Humvee). It's billed as the ultimate four-wheel-drive, all-terrain, more-macho-than-thou, High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle. It came of age during Operation Desert Storm. Even before Desert Storm, Arnold wanted one. The maker, A.M. General Corp. of South Bend, Ind., was busy churning out Hummers for military customers. Arnold persisted: "I'll be back."

One Hollywood Boulevard sidewalk star might not be enough for bodybuilder-turned-actor-turned-politician Arnold Schwarzenegger. An unauthorized star honoring "Arnaldo" that is embedded in the sidewalk just outside the boulevard's Walk of Fame is prompting debate between those who want it jack-hammered up and others who want it preserved by the city. The stylized mosaic-tile tribute has been cemented at the northeast corner of Hollywood and Gower Street for more than a year.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, have put their Pacific Palisades compound on the market at just under $18 million. The actor, who has said that he might think about running for California governor after the July 2 release of "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," and Shriver, a contributing anchor to "Dateline NBC," bought a newly built home in a gated Brentwood community for nearly $11.

Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Planet Hollywood International Inc. said Tuesday that they are ending their formal association after nearly nine years, just as the Orlando, Fla.-based restaurant chain is emerging from bankruptcy reorganization. Schwarzenegger in 1991 joined fellow action stars Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone in lending their names and memorabilia to the chain in exchange for stock.

El Nino is still with us, new satellite data show. The most recent image taken by NASA's TOPEX/Poseidon satellite, released earlier this week, shows that the Pacific has not yet fully recovered from this record El Nino event. The image shows that the remnants of the disruptive pool of unusually warm Pacific Ocean water, commonly referred to as El Nino, are now north of the equator.

A lot of women have a love/hate relationship with Barbie. But Judy Rogers has it worse than most. Put a Barbie doll into her hands and she's likely to try to rip it apart--bend its knees thousands of times, set it on fire, even hurl the poor thing against the wall. But it's not a feminist rage against Barbie's impossible measurements and vacuous smile; Rogers is just doing her job. She's a doll specialist in Mattel's quality and safety engineering department.
