If only Mar-a-Lunatic could become a bottomless quicksand abyss and Trumpty Dumpty, Dencey Pencey, Mooch McDumbbell, Babyface Kavanaugh ad nauseum fall irretrievably into it.....where are Wally Gator and crew when we NEED them?

@5 pat L: If Mount Rainier and / or Mount Baker blows, those of us in Western Washington and British Columbia, Canada are all toast. Seismologists, scientists, and meteorologists alike have told us in the PNW to get ready for The Big One.

The people in the District of Columbia are pretty much unified in wanting statehood. The people in Puerto Rico are not. Many want statehood, many want independence. The rest of the country is more eager to see Puerto Rico become a state. Ideally both Puerto Rico and D. C. would become a state at the same time.
