Come on though! there have got to be a few closet libertarian socialists here! As least a few closeted of some sort or another! ;)

Anyway not important!

Well said! For your support of my Socialist-Libertarian autocracy, I will be rewarding you. How does "Governor of Canada" sound?

Welcome Buffy - sounds like you're going to fit right in...

Do you have any stories about "Downtown Kelly Brown"?

Welcome to our little world.

Be certain to say a prayer to Dan (a.k.a. The Creator) praising his goodness.

I am amazed that anyone who reads some of the posts (like the Neverending Thread) would venture into the shark infested waters of Cyburbia. Welcome aboard!

Move to the West Coast (if you aren't there already... where the heck is Koffin anyway?)... most of the planners I worked with in Washington and California were/are fun and looney...

Yeah, we consider you looney too (and that's an understatement!)...

I've only worked on the West Coast, so that's all I can speak for (well, except for my current prairieland stint)... From what I hear from people that have worked both coasts, is that the left coast has a more relaxed work environment.
