How much news coverage should the pope's visit to the USA get? Should it be carried live on major broadcast networks, or relegated to the nightly newscast?

So I've been thinking about moving around the Seattle, Washington area or outside of Washington, D.C.

As of this moment, I am living in southern California. I don't know what to expect. I have been doing a little bit of research on websites like "city-data", reading up on studentdoctornetwork, and reading articles but...

TQC, do you have experience living/visiting these places? What can you tell me about them? I'm talking about weather, cost of living, how difficult is it to find a place to live, FOOD OPTIONS (one of those really important things), how active of a city, frequency of crime -- don't exaggerate please, etc. If I visit these places, what do you suggest I see or experience to get a feel for the area.

Everyone has roots somewhere and I do understand opinions will vary based on experience.

I've never really lived outside of California, but I know when I'm done with my studies for undergrad, I'll want to try living somewhere else for awhile. Also, I've lived in the Bay Area and near Davis, CA too. So I've had some experience with colder climates -- not exactly snow or anything... does it snow in Seattle? What is there to do in Washington, D.C.?

I know nothing.

I would like to preface this by saying that I signed on to my LJ account today, which was probably the first time in about 4-5 years.  Out of curiosity, I took a gander at tqc, as I used to post in this group say, 10 years ago, under a previous account.  And I see it's still pretty active.  Now, on to my questions:

1) Are you serious???

2)  I just read some of my old posts.  I can't believe I produced such arrogant drivel.  I didn't have a career yet, responsibilities, or anything.  basically, I didn't have a pot to pee in yet, but I thought I knew everything. I think I was on drugs when I was writing some of these, too.   Have you ever looked back at your old Livejournal posts, and cringed hard?

Have you ever been involved (giving or receiving, as it were) in hazing or an initiation ritual or similar? What's the weirdest or most extreme thing you've done or witnessed as part of an initiation, into a club, society, fraternity, military unit, or whatever?

How to you pronounce RIP?

I was talking with a friend today and read a paper that said "RIP, friend." I pronounced it R.I.P, saying each letter like the acronym it is! My good friend next to me looked at me like I was crazy. She pronounces it rip, as in the word, as in rip up a paper. She also said she never heard anyone pronounce it like I did.
