California Hall of Fame

Governor Schwarzenegger and First Lady Maria Shriver have announced this year's inductees into the California Hall of Fame:

photographer Ansel Adams
comedian Milton Berle
computer entrepreneur Steve Jobs
former San Francisco Giants great Willie Mays
wine magnate Robert Mondavi
actress and dancer Rita Moreno
civil rights figure and baseball legend Jackie Robinson
medical pioneer Dr. Jonas Salk
author John Steinbeck
actress Elizabeth Taylor
governor and Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren
actor John Wayne
golfer Tiger Woods

Well, it certainly is an eclectic list. Makes me wonder what the criteria for selection are, or indeed if there are any criteria at all. It certainly doesn't look as if all the choices are based on any kind of unique contribution to California.

In any event, for the full list of inductees, check out this page.
