62. Don't count on it.

I would like to see Obama pull the convention out of North Carolina but I have no allusions that it will happen. I have to respond to your statement that NC is evolving, etc. That is what we have heard here in Texas for years and it has only gotten worse. My partner and I don't expect to see marriage equality anywhere in the South in our lifetimes. Unless you are a hell of a lot younger than us you should not kid yourself. This religion-crazy country is hopeless, and the South is the center of this insanity.

Charlotte is probably like Austin, a little more evolved than the usual in the South. But you can bet, as this vote revealed, the rest of the state is overwhelmingly populated by the same mouth-breathing knuckle-dragging Southerners as is the rest of Texas, including Houston where I and my Partner live, no matter how much you hear about Houston being so international and cosmopolitan and even with our Lesbian Mayor.
