They do, but it is SECAM rather than PAL, so they may have just suppressed the colour rather than converting from one standard to another.

Overdemonized.  If Rumsfeld had been even half-way competent, Cheney's preferred policies wouldn't have looked nearly so bad as they do now.

The problem is, the comparison with Rwanda, while totally overblown by Gbagbo, does have a kernel of truth to it he might be able to make use of.  Both the Akan of Côte d'Ivoire and the Tutsi of Central Africa are powerful ethnic minorities that have engendered dislike in their neighbors by trying to cling to power despite being unable to sustain it in a purely democratic fashion in a democracy where ethnic loyalty is the first consideration. The difference in Côte d'Ivoire is that while just a minority, the Akan are by far the largest ethnic group, while in Rwanda, the Tutsi were not.  It's a lot harder to start a genocide if those who would carry it out have to worry about whether they might be next.

When I first saw the title of this thread, I thought that this was going to be about restaurants somewhere being required to disclose how much energy was used to produce and transport their food, thereby allowing consumers to know how much of a 'carbon footprint' their food was responsible for.

15221  Forum Community / Survivor / Re: Electoral Vote survivor - Gemini Tribe ♊ - ROUND 4 of 5 until merge on: April 02, 2011, 08:13:40 pm
Votes:
1 Johnson E(10) K(3+3+3)
17 Knox E(10+10) K(3)
10 Wilson E(10)

Safety:
2 Hancock
2 Shriver

Results:
Voters were especially certain of what they wanted in this round, with none choosing to split either their eliminate votes or their keep votes among multiple choices.

With 17 votes, Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox has had his chances of winning sunk by your lack of enthusiasm for him.  A newspaperman and former Rough Rider who was an advocate of military preparedness, he was tapped by FDR to be his Secretary of the Navy in 1940 to ensure bipartisan support for his preparations for World War II.

It is fitting that Vice President Henry Wilson was brought low by a Southern Atlasian.  This ardent Massachusetts Free Soiler is also known as the author of his three volume History of the Rise and Fall of the Slave Power in America.
15222  Forum Community / Survivor / Re: Electoral Vote survivor - Taurus Tribe ♉ - ROUND 4 of 5 until merge on: April 02, 2011, 08:12:13 pm
Votes:
13 Gerry E(10+4+2) K(3)
11 Pinckney E(7+6) K(2)
5 Taft E(3+8) K(3+3)

Safety:
1 Adams
1 Bentsen
1 Pinckney
1 Reid

Results:
Yet another voting irregularity involving a Pinckney, as one ballot has 2 keep votes for Thomas Pinckney and the third going unused.  Even if it had been used for him, it wouldn't have affected the results of this round.

The original gerrymanderer, Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, is your first choice for elimination.  Our 5th Vice President was the first who did not attempt to run for President.  He barely lived long enough to have his name immortalize for all time.

Thomas Pinckney, the man who would have been our 2nd Vice President were it not for the machinations of Alexander Hamilton, is one-half of the only pair of brothers in this contest.  his brother, Charles Coatsworth Pinckney is part of the Libra tribe and might get the chance to avenge his brother.
15223  Forum Community / Survivor / Re: Electoral Vote survivor - Aries Tribe ♈ - ROUND 4 of 5 until merge on: April 02, 2011, 08:11:00 pm
Votes:

-1 Hendricks K(2)
6 Iredell E(4+2)
-2 Smith E(4) K(3+3)
12 Sparkman E(6+6)
-3 Weaver K(3)

Safety:
1 Davis
2 Fairbanks
1 Iredell

Results:
Voters in this round decided to be quite peaceable and not make any ell. Amos Ellmaker, the Anti-Masonic Vice Presidential candidate in 1832 is eliminated first.  His Congressional record is curious.  Elected to the 16th Congress from the 3rd district of Pennsylvania, he never took his seat, choosing to accept a State judgeship instead before the 1st session of the 16th Congress.  Then in 1834, he came second to James Buchanan for a Senate seat from Pennsylvania.  I think there's a what-if lurking there.  What isn't lurking are images of Amos Ellmaker.  Wikipedia doesn't have one.  Another site tried to foist off a picture of Richard Rush as Amos.  I was able to find two pictures that almost certainly are of an Amos Ellmaker, but I'm not certain that it is this Amos Ellmaker.

Senator John Sparkman of Alabama is your second choice to be eliminated.  The running mate of Adlai Stevenson II in 1952, he received not even one delegate's vote when, in an experiment not repeated since, Stevenson threw the choice of a running mate to the convention.
