Scotland Votes

The Scots, who number 5.3 million - more than a million less than the population of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex - will decide in a referendum held today whether to destroy a 300-year-old union with England, plunging themselves into social and economic ruin, or whether to remain part of a highly successful United Kingdom which has done incalculable good for all concerned the last three centuries, not least for the Scots themselves.  The Daily Telegraph is live-blogging the vote, but final results are not expected until early Friday morning. 

The BBC explains what is at stake:

Update, 4:30 p.m., Texas time: the Telegraph has switched to an overnight feed to report the election returns as they come in.

Update, 12:30 a.m., 9/19: Scotland has voted NO to separation by 55-45 percent, your Head Trucker is glad to report.
