A few months ago, I wrote this:

At some point, can we just move Austin and its residents to some other state, give Texas over to the fundamentalists and evangelicals, and then let Texas secede? Maybe we could bring Houston along too, but not Dallas.

Patrick Hayden has now seconded the motion in a post headlined “Via Julia, further evidence (free reg. req.) that Texas should be thrown out of the United States, if not sawed off the mainland and pushed out to sea.”


UPDATE: Charles Kuffner was, as is true of most blogging about Texas stories, the original source for the story.
