If there are no more final issues to be resolved here or points to make, I will bring this up for a final vote tomorrow.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

What exactly are you referring to? The final text I posted on page two had a lingering clause that had been amended out. Them strikethroughs just don't copy and paste. Tongue

You know, that is why we have 10 people in this body. So that you have nine "reviewers" in case something was missed. TJ found something I had missed. Someone else wasn't available to discover what he missed.

This too shall pass. I can reintroduce this, put it into the PPT slot which is open. Use UC and have it at vote by tomorrow night.

The text says "their Senator and President."  Regions can't elect a president nor do they open separate booths for those elections.
