It came up again on NPR this morning. I was still half asleep so the entire story didn't sink in but I did hear them say that surprisingly, many people are still changing their minds back and forth. They also mentioned that anyone over 16 is eligible to vote and that 90% of eligible people have registered.

This is a very interesting event!

There was quite a long article on the American CBS Sunday magazine show. PBS News Hour has also had quite a bit of coverage. 

It will be interesting to see what happens because people often change their minds once they actually have to mark a ballot.

I seem to hear a little blurb about it every morning on the news radio. Less than ISIS, slightly more than Ukraine.

The topic came up this morning in a meeting at work. One of the guys in the meeting (via phone) is in London this week and we were discussing how prevalent the news is there. And someone said, it would be like if Texas were voting to secede. Hmmm...  >:D ;D
