I'm pretty sure the "raft in the foreground" is a RHIB, or Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boat, and not a raft. They're a little less Huck Finn, and a little more Coast Guard in terms of performance.

@11 is on the right track here. As long as we're asking for the impossible we should be nailing together the empty states. Any state with a population under 2.5 million is a candidate for merger. Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana qualify. Nebras-kotas. Alaska as Washington's 40th county. 81% of us live in cities. There's no reason to consider giving more Senators to the empty spaces.

I dunno. Letting her blow up the 19th amendment to the full screen and swear her oath on a representation of that expansion of civil liberties seems pretty cool to me.

On the train it's easier, both physically and culturally(?) to stand up and walk away from someone who makes you uncomfortable. Which, for some people, explains their preference the suburbs as well.

Seconding #7 above. Sosios will, like the market woman noted in another post, pick you peaches that will be best on the day you want to eat them.

Almost a guaranteed outcome when you take export oriented large farms and convert them to subsistence and small holder market farming. These may feed your family. They may even pay school fees for your kids. But they're not going to pay back loans made to the displaced farmers. Add in the balance of trade issues that follow a switch from tobacco to maize and your banking crisis deepens as other sectors that require hard currency inputs start to fail.

Paul, I'm pretty sure the Alexander's talk is tomorrow night at Town Hall, and not tonight.
