All 50 states present and accounted for

Yep, they're all still there: This time both Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and President Barack Obama had little difficulty during Obama's oath of office, save for a slight stumble as Obama said the word "states" in "president of the United States."

You'll have to excuse the president; he was just taking a mental roll call of all 50 states to assure himself that none of the red states had actually seceded in a whiny snit.

I'm fixing a hole: Looking to pass federal Justice Department muster, Washington state officials are working to craft strict controls for a voter-mandated system regarding the production and sale of legal marijuana.
