It is the core fact that drives Bacigalupi's Water Knife, which is basically a "what if?" fictionalization of Cadillac Desert.

It's also worth noting that a similar relationship exists between Texas, the Rio Grande, and Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Las Cruces.

Hatred of Texas is largely driven by the fact that Texans are assholes who can't drive, can't ski and think "queso" is food but the fact that two million dirt-poor brown people don't get to irrigate their crops so that a bunch of redneck gringos can snipe at wetbacks from their porches doesn't help.
