The blog is impassable
Bad news: After sizing up the situation, I think I'm going to be moving at a pretty grueling pace for the next few weeks, and I'm probably going to end up with more work than I can actually carry back to my room. Consequently, I'm probably going to be, uh, gone from here for a few weeks, or at least not updating as often as I have been; I'll try not to lose my shirt in the meanwhile.
But first, here's a few links so that a really bad Oregon Trail conceit isn't the last memory y'all have of me.
SurveyUSA: Head-to-Head Presidential Pairings
I promised some people that I would try and abstain from links posts for a while, and I promised a lot more that I would have no need to talk politics for an even longer, while. Sorry, guys.
This is pretty painlessly non-partisan, though. SUSA apparently polled a few hundred thousand people, Literary Digest-style, in all 50 states asking them who they would vote for between Democrat X and Republican Y, for about a dozen candidates on either side. The results, available on a color-coded map with drop-down menus, seem a bit sketchy at times (Barack Obama never wins more than 5 states in any scenario), but they're still fun to run through. Did you know that Russ Feingold would beat Newt Gingrich but lose to Mitch Romney?

And finally, a certain something just for Hadley.
See y'all in a few days.
