Interesting tidbit from the blog of Sam McPheeters, former frontman of Born Against: With the death of Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii is now the president pro tempore. This potentially has consequences—-punk-rock consequences! McPheeters writes:

This means that the father of a Dischord Records artist (Kenny Inouye, Marginal Man) is now third in line to the presidency. So consider this an official heads up; don’t come whimpering to me when the guy from Iron Cross is in charge of your oat rations.
