User:Natterer is very active behind the scenes on Wikinews and follows most Wikimedia projects. Natterer is a reasonable and thoughtful wikimedian, and will surely interpret Wikinews policies fairly and accurately. Natterer will surely be no respecter of person or position as he natters to Administrators and Editors. I would like to nominate xem for the Arbitration Committee. Test

Draft resolution


WHEREAS members of our community are serving and have served in all branches of our military.

Is this statement really necessary? If it is not, as it is restated in the one directly below, remove it.

WHEREAS, Our friends and neighbors have answered the call to arms. For the sake of freedom in foreign lands they have fought with the honor and valor that makes our nation proud. Two new democracies have been created where voices once went unheard.

If spoken aloud, give a good sized pause after the word WHEREAS. Remove new democracies statement if it goes against the community's current view.

WHEREAS They deserve our praise and have been a source of great pride to our community. Their good acts must not go unnoticed.

THEREEFORE BE IT RESOLVED by this body to proclaim 15th day of January, the year of our Lord 2005 to be proclaimed "Iraqi War Veteran's Day" throughout the provinces of our city.

THE PUBLIC WELFARE REQUIRING IT SO, this resolution is adopted this 9th day of January, 2005.

They are the people their parents hoped they would be and we hope our children become.
