Also, since my other hobby, aside from models, is Yglesias-bashing, is it just me or has anyone else noticed that Slate's "business" correspondent, for reasons that are completely impossible to figure out based on reasonable guesses about personal lifestyle, primarily writes about Apple products and Chipotle?

Will Texas Turn Blue ...Ryan Lizza, New Yorker

Immigration from Mexico only partly accounts for the change. More than a million Americans have moved to Texas in the past decade, many from traditionally Democratic states. More than three hundred and fifty thousand Californians have arrived in the past five years; since 2005, over a hundred thousand Louisianans permanently relocated to Texas, mostly in Houston, after Hurricane Katrina. The population is also skewing younger, which means more Democratic. But Munisteri is more preoccupied by the racial and ethnic changes. He turned to a chart showing Texas's population by ethnic group over the next few decades. A red line, representing the white population, plunged from almost fifty-five per cent, in 2000, to almost twenty-five per cent, in 2040; a blue line, the Hispanic population, climbed from thirty-two per cent to almost sixty per cent during the same period. He pointed to the spot where the two lines crossed, as if it augured a potential apocalypse. "This shows when Hispanics will become the largest group in the state," he said. "That's somewhere in 2014.

C'mon down, y'all!

Surely Item 2 in the original post is a tribute to ogged (pbuh), who had a habit of ironically posting photos and videos of extraordinarily attractive young women. Because he was a feminist.

What's a reasonable amount to pay someone to housesit for two weeks? They don't need to spend every night at our house, but every 2-3 nights would be good.

Inversely proportional to how nice the house is. If you have a Malibu beach house, no money necessary.

48: the cat is sad. Also we have pipe freezing problems even when we drain the pipes so it's nice to have someone checking in.

Usually we just have someone stop by to feed the cat, take in mail and water the plants, but I was feeling bad this time for some reason.
