Arnold Studies

Two professors, one at UCLA, one at John Jay, are partners in academic studies on Arnold Schwarzenegger [LA Times]. They have been collecting information about him for 20 years, not as a person, but as a "reference, a point in our culture", and now they're writing a book about him. They say about Arnold, "He's like a mold that grows everywhere." Yeah maybe, but he is one hell of a funny mold, whose comedic skills have not yet been fully explored. Have you seen Junior? How about Kindergarten Cop? I hope he doesn't get elected, partially because of the mockery it would make of our political system and democracy in general, and also because it would probably prevent him from making any more high-quality comedies in the next few years.
