I can say from experience, DO NOT let any Floridian do the tally. There's a bunch there (or should I say here?) that cannot count. It's those people that make us a laughing stock in the whole U. S. of A. Certain people cannot vote correctly.

I could be wrong, but I think strew is a verb, not a noun.

Think about it, but not for too long.
