Commentary: Franken victory is not funny - CNN.com: "The metric system is the kind of thing that you can expect from the 60-vote filibuster-proof majority Democrats now have in the United States Senate."
Well, I've never thought Franken was funny anyway. But how anybody can think that converting to the metric system is a crazy idea is beyond me. The US, Liberia, and Burma, are the only three nations in the world that don't use the metric system. Does that put us in distinguished company, or something?
