44. Colorado Springs
isn't all crazy! I've been seeing more Kerry stickers here lately, not that that is the best indication. There are more of US here than most people think and we're beginning to "come out of the closet" so to speak. Anger has fueled many people here.

Of course, I sport my Kerry Edwards sticker with great pride.

I'm hoping that the local news here will pick up this story, not likely.
