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!

Lindsay 9

: Lindsay of Crambeth, Lindsay of Dowhill, Lindsay of Kinloch
Sir William Lindsay of Rossie and Logie, later of Crambeth b c1350, d before 1438
Sir William's wife is named by some sources, including BP2002, as Agnes heiress of Crambeth but 'Lives of the Lindsays' suggests that her name was Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John de Valoniis, heiress of Crambeth through her mother, Agnes. Jack Blair, a well-respected genealogist, has kindly advised us 02.09.06 that William's wife in 1397 was called Elizabeth and that the link to Sir John de Valoniis of Crambeth may have come through a sister close relation? Elizabeth Lindsay who was Sir John's last wife and that there is nothing to suggest that Crambeth came through his wife. Furthermore, Jack Blair:
- suggested that William's first marriage was without issue whereas the other sources indicate that she was mother of John.
- identified children by Matilda as shown below.
- reported that the arms of William's son John, the eldest of his sons, indicate that he was illegitimate.
