hmmm, I don't see any representation from the bible belt states.

There are also studies that show a correlation between the bible belt states and higher teen pregnancies, high murder rates, higher incidence of sexually transmitted diseases and higher divorce rates. But I digress...

Ehhh... bible belt - southern states. I guess they're one and the same, huh?

I am a bit disappointed that my home state of PA is not on that list...but it appears that individual cities and townships are chipping away at the lack of protections.

I have to tell ya one hing about living in "The District " , besides being known as "Foggy Bottom , it's extremely expensive to live there and parking is well, non existant . I used to think the cost of living was high in San Fransisco. shoot , if i was lucky, I could find a place to park one of my delivery vans about thirty blocks away from my apartment in D C . Yes, folks who wish to transition there can ue the bathroom with no fear of retaliation . Still, muggings are way too commonplace , people sit open garbage out on the curb only to be attacked by "protected Vermin " . The apartments avalible to one short of a presidental nomminee are about 4,500.. plus utilities a month in a half way decent neighbor hood . Oh , to negotieate a way to work ,you use alleys that were designed for horse and buggies , not automobiles . Hey, if ya think I'm making this stuff up, i'll be willing to accompany ya on a tour !
