Very sad to hear this Ric. Sounds like you and Joe can commiserate in your state's downhill slide into... what. I don't even know what to call it besides socialism so they can eventually be another Venezuela then the leftist leadership will squeal like stuck pigs to the feds to bail them out. I don't think states can go bankrupt; only towns, cities, and counties.
There's room for both of you and your families down here in NW AZ. Probably get a real nice house for half of what yours will sell for there. I bet NAB could say the same thing about where he lives.
