How 'bout that? We find ourselves in agreement again, Auspex. You might need to look in the mirror and examine yourself more closely....you mind find that you are confused about your.....orientation. I think you are a closet conservative but feel guilty about it because your "brothers and sisters", as you call them, aren't as enlightened as you. But seriously, I am in a profession with quite a few gays...conservative gays...and guess what? Their politics NEVER comes up in conversation. We all equally contribute to our work and get along fine. Why is that so hard for the lefty gays? Can you explain?
