Random Commuter Observations - "Summertime, And The Living Is Sticky" Division

Regular readers will already know of my long time belief that the Founders should have endowed the newly-created United States with both a Winter and a Summer Capital. The northern end of the Virginny Tidewater is pleasant enough eight or nine months out of the year, but only a maniac likes being here between Memorial and Labor Days.

At first I thought that Seattle might make a nice alternative to beat the heat, but on further consideration decided that it just wouldn't do. Too remote. Plus, it's full of hippies.

Then I thought that perhaps Maine would serve nicely, especially as I head up there for vacation in August anyway. However, I skotched that idea after the Mothe, speaking on behalf of the entire population of the Pine Tree State, stated in no uncertain terms that Uncle and all his minions should just stay the hell away.

I'm still working on the Northeastern coast concept. This year, however, my vision has expanded somewhat and the proposal that I have sent up the chain of command now involves the annexation of one or more Canadian maritime provinces.

Given that it's already mid-June and we've been through our first heat wave in Dee Cee, I hope the authorities get cracking right away.

No. In fact, they should take the air conditioning out of all federal offices in DC. Give them buggers less chance of making mischief on the rest of us.
