Is it true that a group was organized several years ago promoting Northern California's secession from Southern California? I frankly wouldn't blame them. I mean, LA alone monopolizes the water resources of about three American and two Mexican states. Of course, when such a group was organized in Texas to secede from the US several years ago, it started rounding people up and putting them on trial and stuff. ============================== Thomas Wier <trwier@...> "If a man demands justice, not merely as an abstract concept, but in setting up the life of a society, and if he holds, further, that within that society (however defined) all men have equal rights, then the odds are that his views, sooner rather than later, are going to set something or someone on fire."
