Non-Famous Admirals[edit]

I deleted the section listing four non-famous admirals, as I didn't see why they should be listed above the other roughly 100,000 non-famous admirals. Congrats to them on this high and distinct honor, though, and I thank them for bravely serving in the defense of the waterways of Nebraska. Danthemankhan 05:02, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

triply landlocked?[edit]

What on earth does this mean? Can someone clarify please, or remove the 'triply' and just leave it at 'landlocked.' (talk) 16:34, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Triply-landlocked: it is landlocked from the left, from the right, and from below. I guess. (talk) 14:32, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
Triply means that all surrounding states are doubly landlocked - these nabour states are all surrounded by states which in turn are also landlocked, so a Nebraskan has to cross at least three state borders to get to the sea. "Shortest" hop to the briny deep is either Wyoming-Idaho-Oregon/Washington or Kansas-Oklahoma-Texas. TGCP (talk) 10:26, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Redisdents of Nebraska[edit]

The criteria says they must be a resident of Nebraska but then people like Queen Elizabeth II and Edmund Hilary are listed as notable recipients. This obviously seems to contradict the first part?--TinTin (talk) 01:30, 19 July 2011 (UTC)
