Moving to Arizona, workin' for the gub-mint

That's right. The two whitest people on the planet are moving to one of the hottest, sunniest regions of the country. What could possibly go wrong? I've got my SPF-80 ready, along with my UV protection suit.

After my nine year stint with McClatchy, I'm moving from the newspaper industry to work for NASA's Mars Space Flight Facility at Arizona State in Tempe. I'll be their web geek.

While I'll miss coworkers, I'm looking forward to the new challenge and a change of scenery. Oh yeah, and I get to work with data beamed from spacecraft orbiting and crawling across another planet. How cool is that? Makes Lowcountry Star seem kinda lame.

You forgot the best part.

You get to work with me again! :-) That's right, viewers at home, I helped to snatch my ex-boss from my ex-employer. The problem was I really missed Arizona but I wasn't done abusing him yet. This was the best way I could think of to do it. The best part is now he's not my boss so he can't even tell me to stop abusing him. Muahaha!

Seriously, congratulations, Mr. Yates, and we're all looking forward to your arrival. See, there's this Javascript thing that needs fixing...

Two words for you Randy: You suck.

I do indeed, but never on the first date. Also, I'm not cheap. McDonald's doesn't count.

That is friggin' awesome. I expect to hear about all the little green men that gov'ment won't tell us about.

I hear Dick Cheney will be moving back to his home planet of Mars after the election so there should be some really interesting information coming in from there.

I thought Dick was from Pluto?

He's actually from Uranus.

So now you work for the man? Say hi to Mulder and Scully for me...and remember, I expect an email alert the instant that data feed reveals video of either Natasha Henstridge or Marvin the Martian.

Indeed I will be working for The Man. I'll let you know as soon as they tell me what's in Area 51, and where they faked the Apollo landings.
