Nick, I enjoyed your artcle but I think that you slipped a decimal point in your toilet paper analogy (easy to do with a slide rule). In this you have 40 squares x 10 million years = 400 million years. But if my old geology text book is anywhere near right the earth has been around 4600 million years or 460 of your 10 million year squares of toilet paper.

So these people transfered (sold) their water rights so that they could build Camino Real shopping center then claim that this is not suitable farmland because there is no water.

Let's hope that the ICE also attends those events. Talk about a target rich environment...

It is a sad state of affairs where an accident will drive an American citizen into bankruptcy but an illegal immigrant will have their debts forgiven. Yes, Gandalf47, that bothers me. Perhaps you'd like to explain why that doesn't bother you.

If she was an illegal immigrant she wouldn't have to pay for her medical bills. Perhaps her second mistake (after not buying medical insurance) was speaking english at the hospital.

"Tague’s more than $50,000 in medical bills — she did not have health insurance at the time of her crash"

Good reason to buy health insurance.
