Here's An Even More Radical Idea

There's been some discussion lately here in the First State about selling off one or more of our Toll Roads as a way to fund transportation improvements.

If you think that that would be a drastic step, you're not likely to endorse the proposal put forward (we hope with tongue in cheek) by a blog called "The Needs of the Few" out in the Midwest: "Let’s outsource Delaware."
It sounds radical, maybe even a little extreme. But it’s a win-win proposition. We’ll sell off Delaware to the highest bidder. I’m thinking it would probably go to Europe, because Europe seems to be fond of lackadaisical countries that seemingly have no purpose (reference Portugal, Belgium, Liechtenstein, and Luxembourg). We’ll be rid of the deadweight, and the profits from the sale will go towards the budget deficit. Probably no one would even notice that Delaware was gone, as it’s merely the 46th most populous state in the nation. No one even lives there.
I live here. I might notice.

Maybe at first it would seem different, but I bet after a while you'd get used to the idea of being European.

Since I'm running for POTUS in 2012, I'll consider my Lt.'s suggestion.

Thanks for checking us out! How'd you find us?

One of my handy-dandy standing Google Searches is for references to Delaware. I always get a kick out of entries like the good Lieutenant's; I'm interested in how our little state is seen from "outside." Most Delaware references are complaints about our small part of Interstate 95. Or simple jealousy.

That linked post was funny but the comments were down right sweet

mike, would you be interested in doing a link exchange?

Certainly, Mr. Spock. That sounds ... logical. (Sorry).
