    There's a pickup in the town I live with jesus stickers and a gun rack with an Obama/Biden '12 sticker on the bumper. I'd never in a million years have thought it possible. But I also saw Yes R-74 signs (legalize gay marriage in WA) with Romney signs in the same yard.
    Folks are complicated. It gives me hope for some of them I like to think it's not false hope. But there are days...

    To me progress is not so much a goal as it is a process and I believe it will not follow a straight course. Remember, the drops of water that form the river may not take the shortest path but they will still reach the ocean.

      mr.u's best friend. He's a hunter and an old biker. He drives a beat up old pick-up with his two big dogs up front with him. He looks like a typical Utah redneck and yet has scads of Obama/Biden bumperstickers and even wears an Obama button on his hat. He and his wife are MSNBC junkies.
