Quote of the Day - He grounds the warship he walks on.
The conventional wisdom has it that California separated from the rest of the United States. While that may be true on an existential plane, we're still here, apparently hanging on by a thread.

Be careful out there. It's still raining, and won't be fun in the summertime to swim in this pool.
