Delaware is just a stretch of road - part of I-95 - that links the New Jersey Turnpike to Maryland. It runs for maybe 11 miles. In those 11 miles you pay three tolls - you get on to the Delaware stretch of the highway, go over a bridge and something else, maybe leave Delaware - the last time I drove it - some years ago you paid around $9 for those 11 miles. 

The state is a feudal estate - the Du Pont family essentially owns it and it has such lax regulations on chartering corporations that despite being the size of a medium size ranch in Texas or Wyoming it has a huge percentage of all the corporations in the US chartered there. It is to big business what Liberia is to shipping and the Cayman Islands are to tax shelters. 

I say we fold Delaware into New Jersey and Maryland and give some place that deserves it a shot to be a state. Any ideas? After all, changing that nice round 50 stars on the flag would be a hassle. Though there is an independence movement in Hawaii so maybe we can just pull out the old "lower 48" flags...

We need only stroh, coloradokid and crazyamos to pick and this round will be in the books. Now, let me see what everyone is saying about the DH...

I bieleve strongly that if something is put up foe vote it should stay up for vote. would this discussion be happening if the DH was losing?

Buck Ewing, C (1885) from Ohio.

By the next pick, I really want an answer on the DH front. I "voted" no, but I don't care much at all. It impacts who I pick in the next round. I think we should start with year 1, or not do it at all....

Not really sure if we are having a vote on the abomination or just a discussion. If it is, indeed, a vote, put me down as an emphatic "NO"!
