"Kerry Stops in Texas Without Knowing It"

The above title is the actual healine of this story. It's not as bad as it sounds - any out of towner wouldn't have known either. Actually, the interesting part of the story is the following:
But their waitress and the police keeping watch outside the restaurant said it is in Anthony, Texas, not Anthony, N.M. An officer pointed to the Brown Derby Pub just up the street and said the line runs right through it.

He explained that many years ago, the pub had a dance floor on the New Mexico side, and the bar on the Texas side because the state's more lenient alcohol laws then allowed 18-year-olds to drink.

Now THAT is true bipartisanship.
