We're in Baltimore!!!

Yes, we have finally arrived. The trip here was a lot of fun. I'll put up a few pics here and leave the rest of the documentation to the professional.

Here we all are at Carthage Jail, in the room where Joseph Smith was shot.

Upon seeing this title, some of you may perk up and some of you may shudder. However, if you're willing to do it, we have an assignment for each of you.
Warning: this is gonna get political. Lately we have been frustrated by people saying "vote for so-and-so" (insert candidate's name) and giving really silly fabulous cheek bones. People. We want facts. Show us you aren't ignorant. Demonstrate your ability to think critically. Talk about the ISSUES.
Your assignment is to comment on this post, telling us who you would like to have the office of President of the United States as well as why, using 3 real and applicable-to-the-office reasons. We don't care if it's your grandpa or somebody famous...just give us their stance on the issues and how this country would benefit.
Another thing: don't panic if it doesn't show up right away. It has to be "approved" first, but, as long as it isn't vile, it will be published. We arrive in Baltimore in 2 and a half weeks, so this blog depends on your comments until then. I expect great things....
