    44 is only 9 years older than the constitutional minimum age for the office, and it's the same age as my daughter. I think that's young.

    We didn't have indoor plumbing until I was in 6th grade, chamber pots were put to good use in our house, especially in winter.

    I see today that President Biden has called several Florida mayors ahead of the hurricane and asked them to call him directly if they need anything. Curiously, he hasn't called DeSantis, I wonder why?
