Arnie Drops Privatization Initiative

At least for now.

Bowing to attacks by police and firefighters attacking his plan to privatize the state's pulbic employee pension system, Arnold threw in the towel at least until next year. We'll see if this is a real backing down, or whether he's just figuring out how to buy off a few opponents in a new assault next year. But in any case, it's a victory for worker pension power.
