Wisconsin nice!

We've long heard the phrase 'Minnesota nice' up here, but word is out that Wisconsin earns a place at that table. See here.

North Dakota topped the list? From my five years there... I'm not surprised it made the list. But I am surprised it topped the list.

Here's a sentence that stuck out:

"She said the results of the research study doesn't surprise her at all."

At first I might think it was a typo then I think perhaps a proximity verb agreement. But some little buzz in my ear keeps telling me it might be "results" as a quasi-mass noun.

I keep swatting it away but it's a pesky bugger.
