This is the route for the Glimmer Twins today. With the exception of the occasional text, I've not heard much from them but I'm sure they are having a great time. On the homefront: went with #1 Son to see Pacific Rim. It was enjoyable, not great but I wasn't sorry we went. I generally like del Toro's films.
On the current events tip, one of the more obnoxious collectivists over at MSNBC thinks they know what the problem with Detroit is: “This lack of tax base [in Detroit] is also exactly the thing that many Republicans would impose on us even when our cities have sufficient populations. This is what it looks like when government is small enough to drown in your bathtub and it is not a pretty picture.”
I always thought it had more to do with corrupt labor unions and corrupt local governments. That GM bailout really helped Detroit, eh?
