All 16 and 17 Year Olds to Have Vote on Scottish Independence

Ho-Ly-Cow, sassenachs...this Telegraph post (by Patrick Hennessy) talks about a HUGE factor in the upcoming referendum for independence in Scotland in 2014.

"The Scottish Government will pay for a voter registration programme so that all 16 and 17 year olds can vote in the independence referendum, Alex Salmond has announced."

I fully admit that if this were going on here in the US for the upcoming Presidential election, I'd be freaking out.  Some 16 year olds are still too immature to grasp a decision of this magnitude   But because it's Scottish independence we're talking about...I think I'm all for it!
