Re: Washington State Ferry System

Dealing with the ferries is the #1 reason I didn't move to Vashon Island when I retired. I really like the lad back vibe out there (had relatives that lived there for many years before re-locating). But you are a slave to the boats as there's no other way on or off unless you have a pilot's license ...

Very few VPs ever run for president and succeed. In the last 100+ years, the only VPs that were elected president without taking over from a president who died in office were Nixon and Bush I.
