FYI: North Carolina

Being a guy who's generally apathetic about politics (yes, it's true) I didn't even hear about this until the same time I heard about Obama's declaration.

N. Carolina's state legislature voted to amend their state constitution, banning gay marriage. Here's are some layouts of the precinct voting totals.

Yep, that's right. Those are all places where institutions of higher learning are located. Fancy that correlation!

And I'm sure all the rednecks are thinking, "Daggum liberal yuppies. All dat fancy learnin's twisted dey heads with all kinds'a foolish, high-falootin' nonsense like logic and science til' they don't know what's what."

"All these years, momma was right. School is the devil!"
