Some Explanation of a Wee Vote in Scotland

15 Sep

GLASGOW — TO most Americans, Scotland means golf, whisky and — if they go there — steady drizzle. Even to the millions of Americans whose surnames testify to their Scottish or Scotch-Irish ancestry, the idea that Scotland might be about to become an independent country is baffling.

Yet, this week, a referendum could decide just that. With days remaining before the Scottish electorate votes on whether or not to remain in the United Kingdom, the result is too close to call.

So begins historian Niall Ferguson, a Scot, about Scotland and its upcoming independence vote. Ferguson has a position–vote nae–but, he helps set some context for the vote. (Full disclosure: Yes, way back, the Andersons were Scots. Before that they were, I think, Vikings.)

You can find his op-ed here at the New York Times site: Scots Must Vote Nae – NYTimes.com.
