For those trotting out the creaking old plea to shift Idaho's border west to absorb Oregon's red country, thus rescuing the state's conservatives from Valley liberalism, I have an easier solution: Move to Idaho! Of course, we'd have to swap hipster Boise for God-fearin' Vancouver. Oh, and if one more visiting Texan gushes rhapsodic about Austin's progressive "bubble," I'm going to lose my shit. You live in fucking Texas! Nuremberg in the 30s, too, was a vibrant cultural mecca — but not so much for the Jews.
