Following the narrow vote of 2-1 in favor of adopting Connecticut, several congratulatory emails were sent by FBO Admin to various offices in the 'Constitution State' -- to the tourist department, to the governor Jodi Rell.
No one replied.
The original announcement:
Last week the Failed Bands of Oklahoma had a vote to adopt the state of Connecticut -- two vote for adopting Connecticut, one against, and one for the muffins.
The reason Connecticut gained our interest is two things:
a) its nickname ('the Constitution State')
b) the fact that it's nickname is based on a failed document that pre-dates statehood by over 100 years
We wanted to congratulate the state of Connecticut, and ask if you have any comments for FBO readers?
The FBO has adopted other places, including the Oklahoma panhandle and Szekelyudvarhely, Romania.
As a result, Connecticut is banned 'for life' and the following changes to the FBO Adopted Zones map have been made (see above).
Perhaps we should listen more closely to our hearts -- and to Terry Waska -- in future votes. Terry was alone in saying 'no' to Connecticut. And clearly he was right.
