So, we made the big move from Davis Sq. to Arlington over the weekend. This allowed us to completely skip out on helping Dave move, of course, but I think we paid the price; my back, hands and feet are all killing me. The mover's were awesome though, I was just amazed that 3 guys could move us so fast. They started at 8:30, and were completely done at 11. The house is a complete mess right now of course, we've got a lot of boxes left to unpack. We might be fairly close to done by the end of the week.
In other news, I see in the newspaper this morning that the US Election Assistance Commission is requesting the authority to delay federal elections from Congress. The Commission claims that the power is necessary in case there is an attack designed to "disrupt the election." Not that I'm any sort of Constitutional expert, but this might be legally possible, the only thing that seems to be required by the constitution is that the Electors all give their votes on the same day, as determined by Congress.
It seems to me that if the purpose of cancelling or delaying the election is to make sure that it is not 'disrupted', then you're not really doing the job, right? Wouldn't delaying or cancelling the election be extremely disruptive? Yes, that's a rhetorical question. I said a long time ago, that the only way that Bush would stay in office is if we didn't have an election this fall. Now that possibility seems frighteningly more possible.
