    I was doing sooo well Saturday night at a party discussing corporations and the financing of elections.  He was listening willingly, even told me that I made him think about something he had never thought about before, and admitted that he came from a long line of Republicans but that he just assumed he was one because that's all he knew.

    I had him.

    Until...he asked me about marriage rights for homosexuals. Except he didn't use the word 'homosexual'.  The conversation went downhill from there and ended with my husband yelling at me to stop.

    I wish I had kept my calm and not turned into a screeching lunatic.  I would like to blame the whiskey but I have a feeling I would have reacted the same way had I been sober.

    While I still stand by my adamance at trying to correct this man's bigotry, I do wish I had approached the situation differently.

    Please, teacher, I am willing to learn!
