>> Today is Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Five Year Wait for Citizenship Nears an End
March 17, 2009
Civil Rights Director Christina Abraham attended a citizenship interview with a man who has been waiting five years for citizenship.
The man initially passed the citizenship test in 2004 and had been waiting for background checks to clear. While waiting to be scheduled for an oath ceremony, his case was rejected because he had gotten divorced. The man then reapplied for citizenship and waited an additional two years to take the test once again.
At the most recent interview, the man was told his application would be adjudicated within three months.
