    Unfortunately, a lot of officials in those federal offices will be more than happy to not challenge Oklahoma. It will be socially progressive institutions, not law enforcement, that will have to challenge this.

    I had the pleasure of visiting a family in Oklahoma a decade or so ago. Very nice people. Very hospitable... And endless ice cream available every few blocks. But of all the places in the world I would not want to be gay, Tulsa would have to be the place. If there is ever a "christian" Coup, it will start there.

    Upper Peninsula, I can see that. Stupak is a primary member of "The Family."

    But central Michigan struck me as very progressive. I had never been in touch with North-central progressiveness until I went to Ann Arbor for a summer. That was great! Lived in a commune and met lots of great people. In town, if you had a little too much to drink, you were more likely to stumble into a bookstore than another bar. Great town. Until then, I hadn't realized how distinct and unique north-central liberalism was. Like a lot of understated things in that region, it doesn't get enough press. I have trouble seeing that North Central Progressiveness fall easily to UP's conservatism, but maybe I'm wrong, I was only there for a few months.

    I met a "Hutaree"-like family in Pennsylvania when I was invited to their compound. They showed me their cannons and anti-police car weapons, even demonstrated them for me. So those groups are all over. But I've never seen a concentration of Protestant Paranoia like I saw in an organized city of Tulsa.

    The lower half of the state, where most of the population resides, is rather liberal, or at the very least...accepting. If you go to the enchanted place called "up north" (which is in fact, a name for just about anywhere) to the country, you might be slightly right.

    I don't value laws that define certain crimes as hate crimes - i.e., laws that discriminate based on race, religion, sexual orientation, and so on, so in the end I value that OK has done away with that part of the penal code.


    cheers,
    Ian

    Crime is crime. Adding legislation to punish the motive of crime further will always be a slippery slope.

    While I agree with the reasoning, there is something very emotionally validating about watching some of these bastards end up with extra time for their crimes.

    It would be hysterical if it wasn't legit... so it's just a disgustingly sober assessment of our xenophobic forebears.
