Hooray! I just got to get away. Secession sounds terrific...was thinking about it myself the other day...that this could happen. If the Soviet Union could break up then so can we. Nothing stays the same forever. Maps continuously change. We have lots of private ed and home-schooling going on down here in the SE to counteract the crapola of the crap nationwide in education. But we'll be able to support ourselves because we'll be able to keep more of our money. So you guys will be emigrating here. Let the sun shine!
