26. Please consider this a standing ovation.
I'm straight, not that there's anything wrong with that, and I live in a rural part of our nation's heartland. One of the negatives of living in a part of the country that has some great positives is that my school friends who are gay were very in the closet during school and, apparently, felt they had to leave the state to live their lives. These were good people, and their departure takes color out of my life. If only people weren't so afraid, distrustful, unaware, or whatever it is about homosexuality. Why can't people just live and let live?

I agree Kerry's statement was made in a positive way, and I am sorry for Cheney's daughter that her mother's reaction to the statement was to declare Kerry was not a good man. Would she also have been "an indignant mother" if Kerry had said her daughter was blonde, or a woman, or short?
