Daddy on the Edge of Wyoming...Again.

Sorry for not being around lately - Daddy actually got a paid writing gig, so I've been working on that a bit, not to mention it's Black History Month, and we've got two fourth grade projects to finish. Reallllly loving me some Oprah Winfrey and Frederick Douglass right now.

But to the point at hand - Wyoming. When last we met, I reported that Wyoming sucked. I just checked - they still suck. Seems their Defense of Marriage Constitutional Amendment passed a Wyoming House committee today, so in the push to treat the gay and lesbian citizens of their state as second class (or worse), Wyoming is doing their part to stand head and shoulders above the rest. Say it with me now - Weenies. other local news, it turns out that some Wyoming legislators actually have some sense. Some of them understand when things are going too far and some of them actually have the balls to stand up to their party and say so. I could go on, but Rachel Maddow, my favorite political rock star, has done it sooo much better than Daddy ever could, so without further ado, heeeeere's Rachel -

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.

~Frederick Douglass

Keep fighting the good fight,
