Because it's Really About Principles


I dislike Arizona's new immigration law as much as the next guy, but the sight of financially (and morally) bankrupt left-coast city councils passing noisy "boycotts" of the Copper State leaves me a bit cold. Especially this one:

Seattle has joined several other U.S. cities in protesting Arizona's sweeping new immigration law. […]

The council's resolution was written to protect the only substantial contract Seattle has with an Arizona company—a $106,000-a-month deal with American Traffic Solutions. The Scottsdale-based company operates Seattle's 29 red-light cameras.
