The Simpsons Groundskeeper Willie On Scottish Independence

On September 18, the people of Scotland will vote whether to secede from the United Kingdom, gain independence (yet again — remember Braveheart?), and become its own country. It’s up in the air right now how the Scots will vote, but celebrities across the UK have been offering up their opinions: Harry Potter author J.K.
