Utah Secedes from World

Okay, Utah has always seemed a bit of its own world, with its rightwing politics and all, but this vote by the Utah House is impressively out there:

The Utah House of Representatives voted Monday to urge Congress to withdraw from the United Nations, asserting the organization was a threat to American sovereignty.
With Georgia voting to end discussion of slavery and evolution in public school texts and Utah seeking to secede from the UN, the conservative movement is establishing new benchmarks for wackodom.
