Where would you visit in the lower 48 during the month of MARCH for a long weekend? Through an airline bungle, I have two tickets to use. The whole trip will be 4-5 days.
What events, conferences, shows, etc. are going on in MARCH that you would love to travel for? Alternatively, we could just do great "get away" spot that doesn't cost a fortune. Take me off the beaten path, folks. Show me the way.
Background re ticketholders: He is an Apple geek engineer with a Pruis, she is an art/history buff and foodie that works in the legal field. Both live in Northern California.

I am looking for recipes that contain state names in their name. So far I have been able to come up with Baked Alaska, California Rolls and Mississippi Mud Pies. There have to be more, what am I missing?

I know ex-Presidents of the USA are still referred to as 'President' (presumably a courtesy term), so would a plane carrying a deceased ex-president still be referred to as 'Air Force One'?

Two seemingly unrelated design/illustration questions:
1. What are some of the fonts that have associated with soft drink companies have used over the years? I realize those logos are hand-drawn, but some, like that for New Coke, seem to have clear typeface antecedents.
2. Where can I find vector-based maps of various states? Specifically, North Dakota. [more inside]

I was looking at a spoof map showing the 'United States of Canada' and 'Jesusland'. In it, the 'blue' states were now part of Canada, and the 'red' states were what's left of the US. With the increasing divide between the two sides, what would happen if those 'blue' states seceded somehow. Don't they represent most of the economic prosperity in this country? And what does that fact say about the this country?
(I know this is not possible, but it is interesting to look at the relationship between economics and political leaning.)

Can someone please explain why a candidate gets all of the electoral votes in a given state if they have the majority of votes in that state?
Wouldn't it be more sensible and accurate to allow electoral votes to be distributed according to the percent of votes carried by each candidate in that state?
Am I missing something?

Are there any good resources for searching United States Supreme Court Cases by which law was being challanged? Has the SC ever said a law banning interracial marriage is unconstitutional and on what grounds? (Hopefully an answers to the first question would allow me to answer the second on my own.)
