I don't get San Francisco

basically, the extra tax revenue gets squandered in additional layers of bureaucracy.

Thanks for this. I wonder, if hybrid work stays in place (come to work 2-3 days a week), some of those 9 people that missed out will put up with a longer commute so the demand might lessen a little.

After living in Chicago, am shocked to see IL having one of the lowest homeless rates

I’ll argue that 2-3 days / week is not “hybrid”. I’d put that as still in-person. Because you need to be within reasonable commute (60-90 minutes) for those several days / week. Doesn’t really change where you get to reside, just which roads you drive on.

“hybrid” is more like “live in Pierre, North Dakota and work remotely 7 weeks in a row, then come to the Asheville office for a week.” So your permanent residence can be outside of the metropolitan area of the office (but doesn’t have to be!).

south is my guess, not north

Who needs two Dakotas anyway

That’s what I was thinking, we can combine the Dakotas and add Puerto Rico to maintain 50 states and save the expense of printing new flags or having people forget the number of states since 51 is harder to remember than 50.

Alternatively we can reunite the Virginias although the language divergence, economic issues, unfinished state of war and nuclear war rhetoric by the north from that fat dictator of theirs may hinder things.

1 Leave Georgia.
2 Go to SF.
3 Sit?

The primary reason we have two Dakotas is that the GOP of that era, aware that the Dakota Territory was inhabited with individuals likely to vote Republican, decided they wanted an extra 3 votes in Congress and the Electoral College.

That would mean the country roads wouldn’t take you home anymore.

That’s ok, the song was written about Maryland anyways. They just changed the name of the state to West Virginia to make the rhythm better – the song writers never went to West Virginia.
