I got the hat but don't think any upvoted comments were needed, just a (bit longer?) delay for adjudication.

comment How did the term “X's finest” come to mean the police force of a city X?
@muru: That 1909 mentions "London's finest" right after talking about New York.

Well, obviously NYPD are the best PD in NY because they're the only one. But you can still compare PDs from different cities in terms of policing abilities. But we shouldn't confuse original meanings with current meanings. What was first meant by X's finest is different to now. Word meanings change all the time. Now people generally mean they're the finest in that city. See also "The bravest" for the FDNY.

I wonder, is an upvote needed on solstice comments for the hat?

I wonder if this comment will qualify for a solstice hat yet?
