So where is the Washington peninsula?
Clamming and crabbing have been great around Puget Sound and the Olympic Peninsula. The state does a good job of managing the resources.

commented on No One Can Stop You From Talking As Long As You Want at Your Caucus Tomorrow
Since the caucuses will be run under Roberts Rules Of Order there will be rules. Whoever is chair normally limits the time allowed to each speaker. In Kitsap County it will be three minutes unless an individual chair decides to change it. The chair will be the precinct committee officer unless the position is vacant. If it is vacant, the caucusers elect a chair who serves for the duration of the caucus.

commented on The American Scone Crisis, Plus: Renee Erickson's Boat Street Cafe Scone Recipe
Cooks's Illustrated for March has an interesting scone recipe. It involves pulsing the butter and dry ingredients in a food processor (I used a blender).
The results were pretty good, with orange marmalade of course. They were actually better after being reheated in a 300 degree oven a day or two later. If I try them again i will probably add some heavy cream to the milk and some zest to the scones.

commented on Are They Ebooks or Are They E-books?
It's about the verbage, not the nounage. The meaning is clear when you say you are going to email a message to someone. I'm not sure what would happen if you said you were about to ebook them.
By the way both spellings of both words are accepted by the Slog spell checker.

commented on How One Reader Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Obamacare
Thanks for the links, Goldy. I was just informed by Regence that they are dropping me come the end of the year. I am seventy, on Medicare and wasn't sure where to go to figure out the alternatives that are available to me.
All I got from Regence was a long list by county of alternate providers that I could contact.
