    I like the idea of simple (to grasp) and practical, but it needs to be something that impacts the while region to raise awareness and gain support. The region won’t notice a small farm somewhere, but they would notice a ballot initiative to build true high-speed rail between Seattle and Portland (for example).

    Should we look south to California towards a possible merger?
