Deficit-Wracked Maryland Calls it Quits

Bad News from the Onion

I've received this twice; the first in a phone call from Karen, and the second from psujedi. So, now you know the rest of the story. I, personally, plan to move to Oregon.

But Oregon is already closed. In the article it mentions that.

So, you can't move to Oregon. You'll have to settle for the southernmost suburb of Seattle... (which I think is in California somewhere...)

Damn. That does it. News like this turns today into a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day. I'm moving to Australia.

I'm already thinking of moving out of MD next year, for a variety of reasons.

I guess this just means I have to leave earlier.

Last one out of Maryland, turn of the lights!

Really? I'm going to be interested in hearing those reasons.

Virginia - lower taxes, better schools, shorter commute ...

Me...

Oh wait, that's a reason to not move to Virginia...

Nevermind then.

I don't think he's going to move as far south as you are. That would make his commute longer.

On the other hand, your ability to join him for RHPS would improve. This is good for you, assuming you need a fill up of freak in your tank...

I have a tank? COOL!

Does it have depleted uranium shells? 50 cal machine gun? Or is it one of those wussy German WWI tanks that a rock can destroy (re: Last Crusade)

This would be your metaphorical tank, with metaphorical depleted uranium shells, metaphorical 50 cal machine guns, and metaphorical freaks. So yes, in a way, it does.

It's a good joke in Pigs In Space. But I digress.

There's things for Yermie to do in AU. They have computers.

You would have a tougher time. I guess there's lots of liaison positions for AU corporations, and an American lawyer would fit in well that way. I have contacts in New Zealand if you're really interested in sheep.

The forward she sent me didn't get to my email until today. You are correct, you were first. I just didn't know that when I posted.

Wench, you tempt me to not acknowledge your comment. You're lucky I'm not as much of a bastard as my reputation screams. 8^)

You can find it in the journal of That Bastard Arthur.
