I'm glad I don't pay attention to local politics. It's so fucking depressing every time I do. At least I live in Pima county, where we waste money, but not on insane civil rights violations.

Texas, on general principle.  Virginia wrote into its Constitution disallowing any sort of arrangement that bestows any benefits similar to marriage on any homosexual couple, so you can't even give your friend power of attorney.  Florida won't even recognize gay adoptions from other states, so if your kid gets sick there you can be completely fucked.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Having lived there for 16 years I agree with TA.

For once.

Oh, and Mississippi has seen fit to enshrine a symbol of racial hatred, murder, and treason on its flag, and in 2001 voted down a measure to correct it with a 65% majority.  Might wanna not give them any tourism dollars.

So, you know. Just go ahead and cross off every last Red State.

Which reminds me. (Marriage possibly illegal in Texas, on the grounds that marriage is, in fact, a legal status identical to marriage.)

That claim is just bullshit posturing.  It is not and will never be held to be true.  Radnofsky is just trying to get her name in the papers to help her AG run.

I hope someone with too much time hires a lawyer to attempt to annul someone else's marriage sometime soon.  Just to get a precedent in.

That's what I'm saying, though.  That suit would fail miserably, probably dismissed at the outset as frivolous.  The legislative intent is clear and very well documented, and that's a big part of judicial statutory interpretation.

Arizona should be visited for the incredible natural wonders we have. If I recall all of them, you can avoid Phoenix entirely, which is always a plus whether you know it or not. Any day you are not in Phoenix is better for it, unless you're in El Paso.

Doesn't that describe the whole state?

Not in the unique way it describes Phoenix. Tucson, for instance, is sheltered in a valley formed by four mountain ranges, and has two major rivers (that we dammed up of course, but that's beside the point). Phoenix is built on the flattest, hottest place they could find.

The rivers that we didn't dam we just drained absolutely bone dry. The sight of the rillito "river" is of course always bewildering/amusing to visitors!

I did almost drown in the rillito once though, true story.

Flagstaff is wonderful and I miss it every day.

Well, not so much today.  Because frankly I'm feeling a little chilly in goddamn Tempe.  ...But fuck it, yeah, I'd still rather be there than here, even (ESPECIALLY!) if I were biking to class on ice.

Arizona is not in fact all desert.  We've got a good bit of forest left, despite the droughts (and resultant bug infestations and fires) wiping big chunks of them out.

And the Grand Hole is worth checking out at least once in your life.

Like I say, come for the natural wonder, and then just don't stay at all, it really isn't worth it.
