It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

Lennox 1

: Lennox of Faslane, Lennox of Lennox, Luss of Luss, MacGilchrist of Arrochar
1 John Guthrie Smith's 'The Parish of Strathblane' 1886 dedicates 'a chapter to 'Lennox History' as its secondary title, the name Lennox derived from Levenax or Levenach Leamhainach, a name derived from the river Leven, so called because it flowed through a dense forest of Leamhan Elm trees. The people of the region were known, at least until 1138 the year of the Battle of the Standard, as Leamhnaigh [latinised as Levenani].
2 Sources disagree about the ancestry of the first Earl, some identifying him as Celtic others as Northumbrian. We show what is reported in TCP and, on the male line, broadly supported by TSP which effectively combines those roots as it reports as does John Guthre Smith that Alwyn Mor, maternal grandfather of the first Earl, was the son of Arkil Arkyll who fled to Scotland from Northumberland in about 1070 following the Norman Conquest.
Murdac of Levanach Levanax
1. Maldouen of Levenach a 1136
A. Muredach of Levanach
Muredach, and his father and grandfather before him, were chieftains probably Mormaers of the Leamhnaigh. As Arkil of Northumberland had been granted large tracts of land in the area by King Malcolm III, Muredach's marriage was probably an arrangement to bring together the old and new leading families of the region.
