Another New York Times article mentioned Island resident Cesidio Tallini, who writes on his blog, Independent Long Island, about his view that Long Island should secede from the United States and form a nation of its own.
What do you think? Should Long Island disengage itself politically from New York State, and become its own state? Is it a crazy idea, or does it make perfect economic sense? Should Long Island go so far as to become its own nation apart from the U.S.? Please leave your comments here.
