44. Heading back to Cascadia Next Week

I'm returning to Seattle after seven years away, definitely looking forward to it, especially after the state elected a completely blue slate this time around, and legalized both gay marriage and pot (I'm neither gay nor a pot smoker, but I've always felt the discrimination against both to be silly).

The funny thing is that most of the people in Cascadia self-identify as such, almost as much as they identify themselves as Americans. In a way, this makes a lot of sense - it is 2500 miles from Seattle to Washington DC, roughly the same distance as London is from Moscow. Culturally, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and Vancouver, BC share a common history, common values, and a similar climate. One of these years, when the burdens of union weigh too heavily, Cascadia will be an independent nation, though that may be decades in the future yet.
