There's a lot of evidence that SB1070 has cost the state dearly in economic development. Wait until a birthright citizenship bill passes and even bigger boycott initiatives are launched.


In a similar vein, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels got a warning from his former employer Eli Lilly that his signing an Arizona-style bill could seriously damage Indiana employers' ability to recruit top talent.


It's hard to believe sane Arizonans are letting demagogues like Pearce and Arpaio destroy their economic future. 20 years ago similar extremism over the Martin Luther King National Holiday cost the state the Super Bowl and gave its image a black idea. And that was small potatoes compared to SB1070 which is said to have cost the state perhaps $150 million in less than a year.
