From wiki:

Both cities were named in honor of sea captain George Vancouver, although the Canadian city was incorporated 29 years after the incorporation of Vancouver, Washington.

Disturbing news here this week: Turns out we have a Nazi/SS officer living in Minneapolis, and he was responsible for many atrocities against Jews and nonJewish civilians. burning villages down with women and children. Was a part of the crushing of the Warsaw ghetto uprising.

He's 94. Still young enough to hang, IMHO.

If the plate featured Jesus, he'd be okay with that. Another case "so long as my religion of majority is the one being depicted, I'm in favor of it, but as soon as it involves a religion other than mine, I'm all for separation of church and state."

You can sue for anything. I certainly hope the court doesn't go to his favor, though.

I hope when he goes to trial the jury consists of a bunch of jewish, mexican, black and hispanic jurors. No Arayans.

I wish him a speedy trial, as well.:)

Ya gotta admit, I had the scumbag nailed though! Sorry about the fake apology, Red! The guy doesn't really have remorse. I thought I blew it then....
I take it you are not Crunchy Bacon and that you intended to post as if you were.

Sigh. Try answering my question with a yes or no and not another question. Please?
If for no other reason than that I have played straight with both you and Crunchy B.

Your response was grammatically phrased as a statement and not a question.

Whoa whoa whoa!... There's a NEW Mexico?? Is is next to New Canada? And don't even get me started on New York and New Hampshire! Guess our settlers didn't have much of a creative imagination!

It is. IDK if it really endorses a specific religion either. Guy's a douchebag fundie IMO, but if it does depict a specific religion then it should have to go the same as I would want it to go if it was any religion. You know? Either what we believe applies to everyone, or it doesn't and we have to own being hypocrites like the DB filing the suit.

Pathetic.

It took you all day to come up with a (sad) response to try to make it look like you knew that Vancouver BC is Vancouver Canada all along. You didn't know and now you're trying to pretend it was some big joke.

Sad sad sad.::just walks away shaking her head::

I haven't been up there in a long time, but I really like it. It's a great place.
