Several readers sent this: Washington state bill would make almost all gun owners criminals. Gee, this sounds like a great way to spur all of the Washington counties east of the the Cascades to break off and form a new State of East Washington. There has long been a deep cultural divide between east and west and a formal split was formally considered as recently as 1995. And of course partition of states isn't unprecedented. (e.g. Maine and West Virginia.) This is spelled out in Article IV, Section. 3, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution. The eastern counties of Oregon should do likewise, to form a new State of East Oregon. The people in the eastern halves of both states have precious little in common with the soggy, liberal counties to the west. The disparity of population has meant that the eastern counties have long been lorded over by the western counties. In both cases it would be good riddance to bad rubbish. ONTW, it is conceivable that the counties in the eastern halves of both states could unify to become, say... East Cascadia. Of course, I'm on record as being biased.
