And under it, an interesting piece on workers and race in the upper Ohio Valley. Things seem like they’re solidifying back here, but a historian will presume little or nothing.

Maybe now that they feel Colorado is in the bag, they’ll start showing you folk in Pennsylvania some love

I’m with Notorious. I think this thing might just happen.

All I have to say is that if it does, I want photos of Rose eating her 10 gallon hat!

I’ve been holding my breath, trying not to jinx things, but I’m ready now.

[Excepting New Jersey, of course, in the 1790s and early 1800s].

This was a good report, ej; would like to have been there.
