I just returned yesterday from a short trip to an Asian country with no flights canceled. Hopefully that experience will be repeated later this month for a trip to a different Asian country.
It’s splitting hairs, but I think it’s because an absentee ballot implies coming from a voter who is physically absent from their state/region for someone serving with the military or working overseas. I imagine this would also be used for someone just physically unable to vote in person due to physical limitations or serious illness. My state of CO has mail in ballots—we get the ballot prior to the election and have the option to vote in person, drop the ballot into a drop box, or mail in the ballot by a deadline in order for the ballot to be delivered by the USPS in a timely manner. But we are not absentee voters. So the term “mail in ballot” captures all the above.

Maybe it’s because “Pen” doesn’t take as much ink? ;-)
Misawa had its Elephant Cage as well, located on “the Hill.”
Cool! I was at Misawa AB 14 years after you left. Fell in love with the area. The base had already changed a lot since your time and was undergoing even more changes during my short time there.
According to the Google, National be Late for Something Day is not until NEXT week—5 September. So Stantis posted this early…..or maybe it’s the Google that’s late……
Yes, from the Gobi Desert. I lived in Japan for a number of years and once in awhile the sand dust got as far east as where I lived. However, yellow dust there tends to be from the cedar pollen more often than not.
FWIW, the flipped states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia are colored incorrectly.
