One other note. Sunday, I was sitting by an open window, feeling the cool air, enjoying the gentle sunshine while reading a magazine. Partner was upstairs sleeping. A couple of fellows came up the walk. One of them is a candidate for our district's State Representative. I asked him what party he was from and he said the Republican party. We have Kerry and Kernin signs in our yard, so he shouldn't have been surprised when I said that I could not support him.

He said, "You mean you could not support Republicans at the local level, too?"

I told him that when Brian Bosma, the Republican House Minority Leader in the Indiana Assembly said that gay marriage was the most important issue facing this state, that I could not trust people like that to make good judgments. It sort of popped out. I didn't mean to be rude and I surprised myself that I said it. He looked at me for a moment and then thanked me.

I meant to tell him that I was voting for one Republican this year, just not Indiana House Republicans.

Oh, that was perfect.

Who, may I inquire, would that one Republican be?
