Not a novel idea. This idea has been around for over a hundred years. As a child in LA in the nineteen fifties, I remember efforts to divide the state into two states. Other names for the two states were proposed, but I don't remember them. There were also proposals to divide California into three states, N. CA, Central CA, and S. CA.

Like most people, I’m a sucker for a heartwarming story around the holidays.

Sometimes, you get that nice feeling when good things happen to good people, like you find at the end of a classic movie like “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

But since I’m a bit of a curmudgeon, I also feel all warm and fuzzy when bad things happen to bad people.

That’s why I always smile when I read stories about taxpayers moving across borders, thus preventing greedy tax-hiking politicians from collecting more revenue.
