When are you going to get tired of the frozen north and take the soon-to-be-spouce [sic] of yours to live in a nice warm climate?
No time soon. Short of us moving to our respective countries’ instances of Niagara Falls, we’re in the best places to be for now as far as being able to see each other prior to and after the wedding (there’s an obnoxiously long process around that that can’t get started until we get married — long story). But we have talked a little about finding our way west at some point, perhaps to San Francisco.
Not much traffic on this one this week (though I’ll still answer items that trickle in), maybe we’ll play again next week. Bring your questions!

I haven’t done this in over a year, and I’ve got new readers who haven’t seen it before, so it’s time for a comeback.
This weekend is Ask Me Weekend #6. Kinda like “open line Friday,” leave a comment below asking me a question you’d like answered in a blog post this weekend. Most anything goes, though I always reserve the right to delete egriegiously offensive comments and spam.
Have a go, and make it interesting!
Interesting article in today’s Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. With New York’s US senator Hillary Clinton soon to depart the race for president, Clinton supporters who don’t care for Barack Obama and John McCain’s appeal to some independant voters, the state of New York could be in play for the first time since Ronald Reagan won the state (and all the others, too, save for Minnesota) in 1984.
UPDATE: The article also points out that this could all go out the window if Clinton becomes Obama’s running mate. Peggy Noonan writes in the Wall Street Journal why he shouldn’t pick her: “She doesn’t turn the page. She is the page.”

Michael Yon, as part of an invitation to US Senators, including the presidential candidates, to tour Iraq with him to see what’s really going on and how well things really are going, makes “a stunning prediction:” the war in Iraq could be over by the end of 2008.
Confederate Yankee has the quote and more details, along with a line of his own: “History will not remember pro-defeat politicians or activists kindly.”

I wasn’t sure, and neither was Redstate.com. But they did endorse Barack Obama back in 1996.
Redstate did some digging, and was rather disturbed by what they found. See why this might be bad for Obama, and why it’s definitely bad for America.
