Poke-em-with-a-Stick Wednesday: Seattle Boycotts Arizona

So, it's official: the City of Seattle is now boycotting the state of Arizona in protest over their new Juan Crow laws. You can find the news story, which includes a link to the text of the official resolution adopted by the City Council, here:

Interestingly enough, while you wdn't think Arizona (in the midst of all its turmoil) wd pay any attention to a symbolic gesture like this, it turns out they're well aware of how this is playing out across the nation; here's an Arizona news story reporting the news about the Seattle boycott.

And yes, the irony that Seattle wd make a specific exemption to keep 'big brother' cameras, run by an Arizona firm, operating here is, well, ironic.
