Graz removes Schwarzenegger name

Officials in Arnold Schwarzenegger's Austrian hometown of Graz have removed his name from a football stadium in an ongoing row over the US death penalty.

The California governor has said he no longer wants to be honoured by Graz, where he has been criticised for denying clemency to a death row inmate.

death penalty views aside; how reassuring for californians that their governor wants to cut his ties with his hometown, the cultural capital of europe, 2003.

like they say: "you can take the trash out of the trailor park......"
i don't think austria has an equivalent....
