“Start Our State” (Baja Arizona) has a Facebook page. Learn more at Drinking Liberally tonight

by David Safier

The Baja Arizona separation movement is, if nothing else, capturing the imagination of the state and the country. While most progressive proposals tend to be "sane" and long-winded — read, too boring for the media to consider them worthy of coverage — creating Baja Arizona is bold and catchy. Hence its front page coverage in the Star.

Now there's a Facebook page, Start Our State. And tonight — Sunday, 6-10pm — Paul Eckerstrom, co-chair of SOS, will be the featured guest at Drinking Liberally. It's at the Shanty, 401 E. 9th St. No charge. Drinking optional.
