Got my mail in ballot today, reading the instructions and I got to this part...
If mailing apply proper first class postage (50¢).
I then spent the next five minutes Googling USPS rates to confirm that, yes, one Forever stamp is now 50¢.

Yes, but former three time Jeopardy champion Erin Zwiener won in a state representative race in Texas! https://www.statesman.com/news/20181106 ... in-suburbs

Love her campaign website. https://www.erinforyall.com/
I used to be AWSOP but wanted to be more theatrical.

On a positive note Morbeedo, if you get to $5,000 on WWTBAM Wednesday, you would have won more money than more than half the contestants on Jeopardy! :D

I hope I didn't jinx anything. :?
