A recent Comment of the Day in which a reader suggested that people from Nebraska need to get high in order to stand living there prompted posts from those who love and loath the Cornhusker State. But the following note strikes a nice balance between these positions -- and adds an interesting claim about a substance that Nebraska law enforcement takes very seriously.

Henry Doorly Zoo ranks in the top ten in the nation. Denver's isn't ranked. Lake Mcconaughy, the biggest lake in a four state region, draws plenty of tourists, especially from Colorado. Yes it is flat here. But there is also plenty of beauty all around us. Just because you all changed your laws doesn't mean that our state has to change the way they operate. That being said, I do love my mile high vacations. I'm just not stupid enough to bring the stuff back with me. It's cheaper here anyway. ;)
