Well, hell - if even Lileks thinks it's too damn cold in these parts, then I don't feel so bad about my sub-freezing grumpiness. The man grew up in North Fargin' Dakota, for heaven's sake, has lived here for all his life*, and he thinks it's too cold and miserable. So I don't feel so bad about all the complaining I've been doing in recent days. It is that cold.

*He spent some time in Washington DC in his youth and apparently hated it. Well, yeah. Nobody actually lives there but the extremely rich, college students, and people too poor to move to the suburbs. Like Detroit, except with more museums and fewer factories.

Oh, that's not true. None of the people I know that live in DC are rich. Or poor, for that matter. The weird part is that they don't work for the Gummint, either!

Yeah, I keep hearing rumors of a middle class in DC, but I've never seen it. Not saying it's not there, mind you, but it's not real visible. I still say it's Detroit, and I say the hell with it.
