Hometown

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

The plan to break up California into 6 parts is actually gaining traction 

If one billionaire activist has his way, the state of California may look very different in the not-so-distant future. A new initiative to divide the Golden State into North California, Silicon Valley, Jefferson, Central California, South California and West California is making legislative headway.
On Tuesday, Timothy Draper’s pipe dream will inch toward reality when he submits more than 808,000 signatures for the Six Californias measure to go before state voters in two years. By having the division plans go up for a vote, the long-shot effort has the chance to stave off critics and ultimately let Californians decide the state’s future.

I can kill this idea with four words: The Colorado River Compact

I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Edgar Allan Poe (via bibliophilebunny)
I realize this makes me an insensitive jerk, but I almost choked on my coffee when I saw this.
