    Default President Obama's In Town

    I live in Green Run in Virginia Beach, less than a block from Green Run High School where President Obama is speaking in about an hour. Needless to say, the area is a complete cluster ****. The traffic in this part of town is horrendous as is, but just going up to Wendy's was a 25 minute trip. This is terrible, considering that according to Mapquest, the Wendy's is roughly 2/3 of a mile away.

    The entire interstate is closed off in both directions for the President's arrival, and it makes me extremely grateful I have nowhere to go. They said the backups are already over 2.5 miles in both directions. Better them than me

    Oh, and there's a Romney bus and a wall of police parked up at Wendy's. I know Romney isn't in town, and Giuliani is on his way up toward Richmond, so no idea what's going on there.

    Actually, I didn't sadly enough. My wife got her teaching license though, and just entered into a program that will be paying her a salary to teach, and paying for her Master's in the process.

    I decided to go back to school and get a degree in something I have advanced skill and experience in, like I should have done from the get go - Mechanical Engineering.

    I applaud the President's new anti-obesity program. Preventing trips to Wendy's may save Americans 100's of billions in preventative health savings! On the other hand, there is the carbon offset to the motorcade.

    I'm so confused!

    (Do I have to say I'm joking here or will this be taken seriously?)

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.
