I did the M last year from Queens Plaza, and it was full of people in period dress - very raucus. There were period appropriate 3-4 person bands playing music in several of the cars.

Of note is SD:

Two years ago, South Dakota ordered officials to withhold various licenses from people who owe the state money. Nearly 1,000 residents are barred from holding driver’s licenses because of debts owed to state universities, and 1,500 people are prohibited from getting hunting, fishing and camping permits.

This might be a good place to default on student loans if they only don't allow you to get a hunting/fishing/camping permit, lol j/k.

ALOL! Maybe they are calculating based on how she used them.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Interesting. I wonder how the courts will valuate them.

To be fair, they might have to call in Dan himself as an expert witness and this doesn't even include any point bonuses or anything  ;D
