In the wake of the large boost given to the Texan independence cause by President Barack Obama’s reelection last year (discussed recently in this blog) and the more than a hundred thousand Texans who signed an online White House petition for peaceful separation (as also discussed in this blog), the activist stunts continue.

[For those who are wondering, yes, this blog is tied in with my new book, a sort of encyclopedic atlas just published by Litwin Books under the title Let’s Split! A Complete Guide to Separatist Movements and Aspirant Nations, from Abkhazia to Zanzibar. (That is shorter than the previous working title.) The book, which contains 46 maps and 554 flags (or, more accurately, 554 flag images), is available for order now on Amazon. Meanwhile, please “like” the book (even if you haven’t read it yet) on Facebook and see this special announcement for more information on the book.]
