Tucson Wants To Secede From Arizona, Obviously

Ha, ha, this won't go anywhere, but it's nice to see: Pima County, Arizona (otherwise known as "the Tucson sprawl"), would very much like to sever its ties to the rest of the state, the crazy part ruled by Phoenix. Not a bad idea! After all, as this article points out, the area is larger than Delaware or Connecticut, and has more people than Wyoming, Vermont, or Montana (among others), so why not? Oh sure, this idea has been floated before, but you guys, this time they're serious! The new state would be called "Baja Arizona" (why not "Pima Arizona"?) and its chief export would be, I suppose, liberal Baja Arizonans.

For branding purposes, I would suggest a different name, for instance "Gadsden" or ""Sonora" but whatever, I think it would be awesome.

Those are good suggestions, Mad Diane.
