Um...I guess I picked a weird time to try to get back on as Congressman Larson. Someone told me a little bit about what's happened since I had to take a long hiatus from NS, such as some Wolf family developments, basically IRL developments regarding Soleimani and Iraq, Speaker Douglas resigning, a bill allowing states to legalize cannabis passing Congress...anything else I need to know before I try to get back into the swing of things? I'll try to be more active, but I'm starting a new job this week where I have off Thursday and Friday.

Oh wow, it's awesome to have you back. I've got lousy memory but hopefully someone can give you a digest ASAP! We should probably have a wikia page for the timeline...

I was thinking of writing up a slice of life that hinted at her having some sort of female-female relationship in the past taking place during the recess, still have time to write that so I might, honestly it kind feels to me that she might not even realize herself that he ain't straight if I do end up writing anything about it, which on the plus side means a potential arc to write

So why did Speaker Douglas resign, and aside from Representative Simone, are there any other contenders for the Speakership so far?

ICly, I think it's a mixture between health and personal drive, and no - at present - Simone is the only candidate for the Democrats. Volker is up for the GOP, but that's like pissing in the wind.

Well, you need to cover his childhood, the divorce, his military career, his subsequent career as a political operative, and then his own family. He has kids.
