  •  I think this is the solution to the dilemma (3+ / 0-)

    of fearing putting one's money into the hands of teahadist bigots who will send it off to some nutcase organization before you get out the front door of their restaurant/store/hotel.

    Also the feeling that one cannot say much of anything in some places because odds are the person you are talking to, who seems so nice, might well shoot you if they knew what you tahought about issues they really care about (our side does not usually carry weapons but their side does). Obviously there are worrisome peole everywhere, but on a vacation it feels better knowing that they are a minority of the people you are dealing with.

    I do not think that NC is anything like the most worrisome of places even after this vote. There are certainly islands of sanity just as there are in Texas. I will not set foot in Arizona and I have never been in Alabama or Mississippi, not a boycott, just happenstance and a kind of lingering 1960s image problem for me.

    But yes NC -- I would go to places selectively especially as a part of an organized effort to send a positive message rather than a negative one.

    We have only just begun and none too soon.
