Dear big beautiful Texas with all your gorgeous pageant women and crappy food: you are the only state that joined our Union with a treaty allowing for legal secession. . . .And once Texas reasserts its independence, all sane Americans will immediately petition for citizenship in the Lone Star Republic. Why? Because (a) the United States is circling the toilet bowl and (b) Ladd urges that Texas take all their hawwtt women with them. (And it's now officially Rule 5 Sunday.)
You can get out now and no one will stop you.
However, it should be noted that the peaceful secession of Texas will not prevent the University of Alabama from inflicting a world-historic ass-whuppin' on the Longhorns Jan. 7 in Pasadena.
UPDATE: While I don't know whether William Jacobson would support Ladd Ehlinger's radical idea, if Texas wants to recruit someone to draft a petition of grievances, Professor Jacobson demonstrates his brilliance here. And he's a law professor, so he knows all about that "whereas" stuff.
