The Dallas Stars is named after a star in the sky.

You make a compelling argument.

Who'd have thought this would be the most controversial question?

But the Senators are OK?

They're not even an existing team. They're wrong for the same reason the French Indochina question was wrong.

French Indochina was wrong because it wasn't a country but a colony, right?

This may be the only time where it is somewhat appropriate to put scantily clad pictures of women in a Politics Talk thread.

Nothing in the question indicated the present. Anyway, I thought French Indochina was a wrong answer because it was a colony and not a country.

Damnit!

The Senators should be wrong because it evokes a negative image of America.

It's been nearly 35 years since Harold Wilson's ministership -- I'm not sure that qualifies as "relatively recent."

I would have expected Mr. Wilson and Mr. Heath to be more popular because of the Beatles song.

No, it was wrong because it does not exist. The team needs to have a name, not have had a name.

The Washington Senators are now the Twins. That is the name (Twins) that the team has.

Tense is important in these questions. See the UN question: "currently holds or previously held a seat"

Yeah, it may not be wrong on present-past question, but Senators aren't uniquely American and they don't conjure up patriotic thoughts.

I was thinking the whole Rogers Rangers to Point Du Hoc to Somalia type Rangers. What else comes to mind when hearing rangers, maybe Texas.
