MY FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR

In March of 2000 I was living in Durham NC, there were two snowstorms that dumped 12 inches of snow each. The bradford pears were blooming, just like in your picture. Every bradford pear in the Raleigh/Durham area was destroyed due to the massive snowfall. the vast majority were split down the trunk, like a banana peel. Other species of trees were damaged as well, but the devastation to the bradfords was astounding. The structure of the tree seemed to be perfectly designed to hold on to the snow until the trunk failed.

SAVE THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE!

Don't you think it's just a little disingenuous to say that moving from a system that favors sparsely populated states (or counties) to a system that favors the actual population of the country will disenfranchise "tens of millions" of voters? Especially when "tens of millions" of voters disenfranchise themselves every election year by not voting. Where's the outrage about that?

Also, I seem to remember some talk about abolishment of the Electoral College coming mostly from Republicans before 2000. That was, until their guy was the one who "won" the election with 500,000 less popular...
