South California – the 51st State

Split State
LA Times

I for one totally welcome the idea of splitting the West Coast monstrosity into two separate states. However, they need to throw LA County into the southern state. This would certainly give the people in North California a lot less to be ashamed of with Los Angeles out of the picture. My only problem is that 50 states has such a nice ring to it, so I propose a clause that says if this is to go through, then we give Texas back to Mexico.
