The Wonder of it all

ScotlandToday Scotland is voting whether to go for full independence. It is very close (which may not necessarily be the way you want it when you are right next door to the other country).

Funny, it only took about 900 years for this to possibly happen peacefully…so far. (So good luck Iraq!)

So how would a “yes” vote go over in Northern Ireland, where things have not been of more recent vintage so peaceful?

That really is a conundrum, especially with the old lately-compromising extremists dying off.

But of all the results, a 50-50 split may be the most opaque possible outcome.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
