Is there hope for Georgia? Part III

Georgia's House of Representatives voted down a (state) constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. Fundamentalist Christians will argue that this will in fact lead to the destruction of Georgia by an angry god, right after he gets around to laying waste to San Francisco. (A lightning strike knocked out the power to UC Berkeley last night, causing me to rush into lab to turn the pumps back on -- maybe God was aiming for SF City Hall, and missed? Maybe Satan's standing over God's shoulder, shouting Miss! right as He flings the lightning bolt.) On the other hand, the rest of us will suspect that there might be hope for Georgia after all.


Once again, I assure you that there's no hope for Georgia.

Viewed from afar, it might seem like there is hope, but--believe me--there isn't any.

There are plenty of worthy individuals in this state, but even in this supposedly open-minded city (compared with the rest of the state, anyway), I feel like it will make me stupid if I stay here too long...

(Ugh, I guess I would feel better about this place if I were living somewhere else, but it's really wearing on me.)
