      From news from the Weird:

      The Continuing Campaign to Make Sure No One Is Ever Offended: Organizers
      of the June 28 re-enactment of the 1805 Battle of Trafalgar, near
      Portsmouth, England (in which Britain's Admiral Nelson soundly defeated
      French and Spanish ships), have decided to remove all references to the
      defeated nations, calling the mock battle one between the "red" and the
      "blue," so as not to offend visiting dignitaries. [The Times (London),
      5-22-05]
