The Crazy Stories Come Out in the Summer

Every year or two, there is a story about a state in the Northeast that wants to secede from the rest of the union. This isn't usually a problem because it never really gets any momentum in actuality. The separation just ends up being a good idea on paper. According to the Associated Press, Vermont is the newest state trying to separate from the United States.

According to the meeting that was held, there were only about 300 people who were for secession. Polling indicates that 13% of the state is behind the idea of secession. Now, just for the record, I'm not calling Vermonters crazy or anything of the sort. Actually, I hope this secession works out well for Vermont. That way I can buy duty-free booze on the cheap. See, this secession helps everyone!
