    Phh, you can want whatever you want, aint gonna mean its going to happen.

    The KKK is still alive and well, there is an active American Nazi Party -- but I dont think they're planning on making any progress -- and neither is the guy trying to make gays illegal.

    We're doing a HUGE rollout of an online diversity assessment for a major bank, and their TN office is one of the biggest groups. The assessment is pre-work for a live class...I'll have to ring up some of the instructors and ask for stories.

    Ha ha, if that doesn't scream backwoods hick, I don't know what does. Way to go for giving a good name to the state of Tenesee.

    Mind you this is the same county as a Scopes trial. Oh if only HL Mencken were alive today to comment on this.

    yeah there is a REALLY redneck town around here called danby. TONS of redneck jokes about them...like:

    "he only virgin in danby, is the one who can outrun her brother"

    kinda lame i think. i know people from danby, yes they ARE hicks, but not all hicks are closed minded...

    Lets just get things in perspective though eh?
    County attorney Gary Fritts said the initial vote triggered a "wildfire" of reaction. "I've never seen nothing like this," he said Thursday.

    But Fritts said it was all a misunderstanding.

    "They wanted to send a message to our (state) representative and senator that Rhea County supports the ban on same-sex marriage," he said. "Same-sex marriage is what it was all about. It was to stop people from coming here and getting married and living in Rhea County."

    Not that the issue of banning homosexuals didn't arise.

    "I'm not saying it wasn't discussed," Fritts said. "Sometimes you had five or six people talking."

    Fritts said he advised the commissioners they cannot ban homosexuals or make them subject to criminal charges. The U.S. Supreme Court in 2003 struck down Texas' sodomy laws as a violation of adults' privacy.

    Fritts said he doesn't believe the issue will come up again.

    Nah, he was born in Tupelo, Mississippi. A tiny house, I went for a visit a few years back during my drive across the States.

    Gracelands is in Memphis, Tennessee, where he spent much of his adult life of course...

    ...sitting on the toilet eating sandwiches.

    I'm sure that not all the people in the great state of Tennessee are complete podunks, but you do get the feeling that even those people that live in houses are a little, um, xenophobic?

    Is that a nice way of putting it?

    homosexuality is illegal in virginia, as well as some other states. I think its legal to be gay here, you just can't act on it.

    I think it was just texas. I can't remember, but I think texas had a different set of sodomy laws for homosexuality and heterosexuality. Here in the fine state of VA no sodomy for anyone.
