Brad Guzan and Aston Villa are enjoying a dream start to their English Premier League season, and the Villans sit in second place in the league through four matches. Led by Guzan's play in goal, and an improved defense that has allowed just one goal so far this season, Aston Villa are riding high after beating Liverpool last week.

By an overwhelming majority of 54% to 46%, Scotland has voted to stay under the yoke of the British Empire. This was the correct decision; we wouldn't have wanted to send in the troops once more to suppress these primitive notions of ‘independence'.
