For John, BLUF: I am for "power down" to the lowest level, but this seems like going too far. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the Web News Source Quartz, we have this on the Scottish Independence vote on 18 September:
Scotland’s boring independence debate. The former British chancellor, Alistair Darling, has been urged to “keep it boring” in a final televised debate tonight against Scottish first minister Alex Salmond over Scottish independence. The first debate was a shouting match that neither side won. More voters believe Scotland should remain part of Britain than become independent, recent polls show.This is going to end up like Market Basket, I fear. Division with no gain for either side, just loss.
