    rural north Florida and interracial couples are fairly common. Only the most racist persons I know would have said what he did about gagging. I seriously doubt anyone under the age of forty would thing twice about what religion or race couples are. Notice, sure, the same way you notice whether the members of a couple have brown hair or blond, are nice or not, or short or tall.  I know there are still plenty of places down here where there could be some raised eyebrows, but they are becoming increasingly more isolated. It was shocking to read this diary. Richard Cohen is way outside societal norms even in the south. He needs a swift kick to the curb.
