This was in today's Mercury News, an interview with someone named Brent
Q: Why did Mary travel (some 70 miles from Nazareth) in her condition?
Couldn't Joseph have registered for her?
A: Yes. The only reason Mary would travel is because she wanted Jesus
to be born in the place of Joseph's ancestry. That would give him
extra rights, including a tax break.
