Reminds me of the All Things Considered news story from, er, quite a few years back. Don't remember the exact year, but the report was aired on this very date. Can't begin to imagine why I remember that detail. The US had found a way to solve its financial woes by selling the state of Arizona to Canada. The state governor,* interviewed for the report, was full of enthusiasm.
It seemed like a great idea all around, but the scheme must have fallen through, because I never heard any more about it after that day. :(
* Bruce Babbitt, who had been a primary presidential candidate that year. I did say it was a goodish while ago.
