Yes, it is crazy.

Thanks for asking, Unsigned Editorialist.

Borderline crazy? Don't reject SR822


Shafer's Senate Resolution 822 doesn't suggest a land grab, rather it creates a boundary commission to work with the states in resolving the border questions. Certainly, though, getting some riverfront property is the eventual goal.

It still might be a longshot, but Shafer points out that his legislation doesn't change the border at all; it just recommends the boundary - as Congress decreed - align with the 35th parallel.

To recommend any piece of legislation without acknowledging the reasons we're actually in this fix, to the point where we're moving a state border--to carry on in that vacuum without a word about how we knew full well that our crisis was coming and did nothing about it--well, that's par for the course.
