Ready for today's Beat 360°? Everyday we post a picture – and you provide the caption and our staff will join in too. Tune in tonight at 10pm to see if you are our favorite! Here is the 'Beat 360°' pic:

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger holds a press conference in Los Angeles. The governor attacked the Democratic-led state legislature, saying it is putting union interests over taxpayers' well-being. The governor made the remarks as the state was about to start issuing IOUs instead of payments. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)

    i was wandering how long it was going to take the leach (debbie rowe) to stir up some crap. in my opinion michael ws right to leave her out of his will. she took enough from him for those kids while he was alive . when a mother sells her kids, she is not a mother in my eyes. i can't say what i want to , so i will keep it to myself and move on. but any judge in his right mind should not let her even see the kids...the kids are in GREAT hands now. michael was a great guy and a great father.

    O Governor,
    Your I's seem angry; And your laugh lines has worn thin.
    Your lips are drawn downward removing that beautiful smile.
    U don't have to fret. IOU or UOI, somebody always O's. Cheer up!
