^ agree on all accountsThey haven't made a big deal out of it, but a lot of the sports announcers here (tv, newspaper, radio) have just started referring to the Redskins as Washington - even when they refer to the other team by their nickname ie "Next weekend the Cowboys will be playing Washington". It hasn't gone unnoticed (in a good way!) but no one made a big show of it, they all just started doing it.

Oh, and we get a democracy sausage, which I highly recommend for encouraging voter turnout.

And I also hear about voter suppression in the US. I’m not very educated on the subject, but how can a country claimig to be the poster child of democracy have the ability to make it so hard for people to vote? I live in Canada and here they mail out a card saying where to vote. If I don’t get a card in the mail I go to the closest place to vote and show my I.D. So I guess my question is, why does your government make it so hard for it’s citizens to vote? And why do the citizens put up with them doing so?

I think Brendan’s confession was obviously coerced, and is entirely fictional.
Neither of these are new deductions, but I figured why not put them out there.
