    Thanks for posting this link, PZ.

    This is my first comment on your blog, which I have been reading for a couple of months. I’m also a fellow Minnesotan.

    It’s interesting to see a different perspective on what is going on in Minnesota. I’m glad there are folks out there willing to put time and effort into keeping the public informed about these sorts of issues.

    TheBrummell: Don’t know about (the) Congo, but I have heard repeatedly that it should be just “Ukraine”, simply because one doesn’t say “the Canada” or “the France”. This is of course different in different languages; my astrophysics and astronomy instructor from years ago was always talking about “the Jupiter”, which I assume is correct in her native language. Last I checked one doesn’t do this in English for US states.
