No, Baja Oklahoma is a slang term for Texas.

Very true. The only point I was trying to make is that people may have the disease and not know it while they are spreading it. By the time the damage becomes evident, they are probably no longer contagious. But from what I've read, pretty much everyone who becomes infected will experience effects at some time. It's a terrible disease, and I'm afraid it's going to be with us for a very long time, perhaps forever. And the people who aren't scared of it are the ones who spread it the most. God help anyone who was in Sturgis N Dakota this month, and anyone who comes into contact with any of them. There may be far fewer bikers in a few months, and the survivors may not be able to ride.

That would be difficult since Sturgis is in SD. With the number of people one would expect a bunch of cases but all I find was a hundred or so in 8 states. It might still be too early.

Pretty sure baja means lower everywhere...but you, presumably, know that 😉
That said, Iím glad you asked the question...I was also curious....and I get the reason. Back in the day, when I lived in Cheyenne Wyoming i wore western garb and a cowboy hat always. One day, a coworker addressed me as ďTexĒ I replied, ďitís OK to make fun of the way I dress, but you donít need to be nasty about it.Ē🙃

Donít dress like that anymore...itís just too f***** hot in Tucson...

Yes, baja means the same here as anywhere else. Spanish is a common language here, although I've heard the difference between European Spanish and Mexican Spanish is greater even than the difference between English English and American English.
