Much has been said against Arizona's immigration move to do the Federal Government's job.
"What if the owners of the Denver Broncos discovered that hordes of people were sneaking into games without paying? What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers are, but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to ask these folks to produce their ticket for entry, and thus non-paying attendees couldn't be ejected.
Furthermore, what if Bronco' ownership was expected to provide those who sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink? And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured, the Broncos had to provide free medical care and shelter?"
What if the "guests" wanted the front center line seats and would shoot other paying attendees to take what they wanted?
What if over 50% of the attendees were "sneak-ins" and the owner decided to take a public vote on policy?
Perhaps the government will sue the Broncos for mistreatment of sneak-in's?

For the first time in more than a century, one of the counterfeit bank notes proven to be in the sequence passed by Billy the Kid and his gang has found its way back to Lincoln County. U.S. Marshal Historian Dave Turk of Washington, D.C., and retired Federal Criminal Investigator Steve Sederwall of Capitan began the hunt to find the sample of the counterfeit bank notes passed by the Kid. They knew that at least one would have been preserved after the trials were over that convicted the ring of the crime.
What they found was contrary to, and more than, what is currently recorded.
"History has it that the plates used to print the counterfeit were never found," Sederwall said. "That's not true. There were 22 plates on three different Eastern banks and the illegal bank notes passed in Lincoln County were from a New Bedford bank. This operation was not cowboys with a press in a barn here in Lincoln County. It was organized crime, fine-tuned, clever, very sophisticated and much bigger than recorded by historians."
