    I'm well aware of all the anti-gay stuff that goes on there. Like that gay couple who had two tons of manure dumped in their yard a few years back. That was shortly before I left, and it made me sick to know that people are willing to harass other people like that.

    You and I have never met, but the fact that I know I would have been afraid to support you in front of the wackos says a lot of unpleasant things about myself. I know I should speak out more. That I don't is my fault.

    I guess the reason more sympathetic locals don't speak up (my own family among them) is that they don't want to be targeted by the crazies. I know at least a few liberals in my hometown who admit that if people knew their politics, they'd lose their jobs or their business.

    We shouldn't have to run scared from these crazies. But it's hard to change tradition. I suppose we gotta start somewhere though.
