Leaving for Florida? In a couple decades a lot of Florida might be underwater as well.


Might have other issues- the idea of the Supreme Court meeting in a church basement in Mankato, MN sounds good- but then you have the potential flap of deciding which church- the Lutheran church that was founded by Norwegian settlers or the one founded by the Swedish settlers? Solving that one might require another Supreme Court ruling!! On the other hand, serving the SC a lutefisk dinner in the church basement might be an effective tonic.



I like the idea of moving it to Vegas. To a casino owned by Adelson. Or to the spiritual center of the Big Three--Jerusalem. It would save on the airfare of politicians continually having to fly to Israel for their marching orders.


If lutefisk doesn't do it, surströmming certainly will and both may be seen as editorial comments, too.

Maybe not Missouri:

"The New Madrid seismic zone of southeast Missouri and adjacent States is the most seismically active in North America east of the Rockies. During the winter of 1811-1812 three very large earthquakes devastated the area and were felt throughout most of the Nation. They occurred a few weeks apart on December 16, January 23, and February 7. Hundreds of aftershocks, some severely damaging by themselves, continued for years. Prehistoric earthquakes similar in size to those of 1811-1812 occurred in the middle 1400’s and around 900 A.D. Strong, damaging earthquakes struck the southwestern end of the seismic zone near Marked Tree, Arkansas in 1843 (magnitude 6.3), and the northeastern end near Charleston, Missouri in 1895 (magnitude 6.6). Since 1900, moderately damaging earthquakes have struck the seismic zone every few decades. About twice a year people feel still smaller earthquakes that do not cause damage.

Earthquakes in the central and eastern U.S. are typically felt over a much broader region than in the western U.S. East of the Rockies, an earthquake can be felt over an area as much as ten times larger than a similar magnitude earthquake on the west coast.
