Shouldn't a newspaper run stories that are actually news?

One more note -- I'm wondering if it would be a good tactic for people who want all human beings protected to threaten to leave states that do not, or to move to states that do so. We hear a lot about how we have to accept things like stem cell research or same sex marriage because it sends a message about what a with-it state we are and attracts smart people. (I find this argument deeply insulting), but let's put that aside for now.

What would happen if those of us opposed to Amendment 2 committed to leaaving the state if it passed? Who would Missourians rather have -- the hotshot researchers, or the decent people who live here.

Now, I don't know if such a strategy is plausible, since there is probably a high correlation between wanting a society that protects all members and putting down roots. But it's something to think about.
