The city that wants to switch states

It's ironic that Utah and Nevada are adjacent; the two states couldn't be more different. In Utah, you can't get a drink. In Nevada, you can't NOT get a drink. The two states have only one real border down, Wendover, and as you can guess--it's bipolar. The Nevada side has 4 huge casinos, the Utah side has an Econo-lodge. And that means that one side of town has lots of money for good schools and roads and crime scene investigators--and the other side is dirt poor. A lot of people think the solution is to simply re-draw the state boundary, so that the east side of Wendover would be added to Nevada. There has been a lot of support for this over the years, but Utah isn't quite ready to let go. Too bad.  (For a larger version of the map, go here.)
