Anyone who has the slightest affinity for nature would not want New York with its Catskills, Adirondacks, Finger Lakes and scores of other wonderful places to secede. Now if we're talking New York CITY....

This is starting to sound like that map that showed that although Bush took less than half of the popular vote and only slightly more than half of the electoral votes, he took 95% of the counties and something like 98% of the precincts. It seems that exit visas for big metropolitan areas would please a lot of people on both sides of the borders.
