Let's give the smart people remaining in Kansas some time to move, and subsidize their moving expenses if need be, then just let Kansas secede and build a big high fence around the fucker. In 20 years all human life will have disappeared, and we can take down the fence, annex the territory again and start from scratch.
Okay, I don't really mean that. But it's alarming and confounding. I wish I had a real suggestion for what to do about things like this.
