I would change the last question. Rawalpindi is not the twin city of Islamabad; it is adjacent to it. Twin/Sister cities to Islamabad are Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Amman, Beijing, and Jakarta. I only knew of Seoul and it wasn't accepted nor did it fit the other words so I got it wrong because the question is poorly worded. I believe it should be changed.

"Interesting Quotes #23 As democracy is perfected, the [Presidency] represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. - H. L. Mencken"

modern haiku rarely has 17 syllables..please QM change it to traditional haiku...i wrote haiku for many years and had stuff published in Japanese papers,(in English) none had 17 syllables...look it up ..it can be as little as 4 words.. . this example from Marlene Mountain:............. Filling the puddle: moon ...........................the program refuses to do it in 3 lines, you get the picture, i hope
