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!

Along with other chiefs, Glengarry was tricked into attending on King James V of Scotland at Portree where they were captured and imprisoned in Edinburgh until the King died in 1542. In 1544 the MacDonells of Glengarry fought against the Clan Fraser at the Battle of the Shirts.

m2 ?? Katherine Mackintosh dau of Lachlan Mackintosh of that ilk Katherine is reported by BLG1952 as being the wife of Donald's undermentioned illegitimate son Angus rather than Donald's own second wife, with Angus's wife being daughter of a different Lachlan Mackintosh. We follow TSP on this. As Donald lived to over 100, it would be surprising if he had not had more than one wife. It is an assumption that his first wife, Margaret, was mother of all of the above-mentioned children. It would also be possible for an illegitimate son to marry his fatherīs widow
