36 Hours in Luray, Virginia, OR I'm a Dumb Motherfucker, and I Vote!



The past weekend will prove to be one of the most wondrous of dinger-fest-bachelor parties in the annals of Queensbury bachelors: playing hooky from work, meeting in Jason's Park Slope apartment, getting picked up by Bryan and his rented minivan with Jaron in-tow and driving a good 7 hours to a cabin in Luray, Virginia for 36 hours of beer-drinking, meat-cooking, baseball-hitting action.

It was my first trip to the South and among the more interesting things (besides the gorgeous pastures and mountains) were the "One Man, One Woman" voting initiative sign, the "On marriage and homosexuality" marquee of the local church, gasoline was $1.99, and camoflauge was this year's juicy couture. Also, the locals were probably the ugliest race of people I've ever seen, a discovery that made us thank our lucky stars we decided agin' a stripper for the party.

I voted early this morning in Bushwick; an almost deserted senior center served as my polling place, which was thankfully just behind my building. I came face to face with an ancient voting machine comprised of a series of levers and switches, that probably was used during the Roosevelt adminstrations.

We'll see how the mid-terms shape up the future of this country, if they haven't lost my vote by then. And I wonder if that sign in Luray, or the church marquee will work its magic and drive the voters of Virginia to keep oppression legal.

I paid 1.71 for gas about a month ago. hey and guess what! down here, a democrat is just as likely to "vote yes for marriage" (meaning vote no for gay marriage and strip other unmarried couples of certain rights they currently enjoy...it's a good thing we're getting married in may, because I have domestic partner dental coverage under erics plan. actually that's why we're getting married...we saw this coming. that and the baby.) i hope the homophobia and the local ugmos don't keep you from visiting in the future. oh and...if you take 78 from the city to 81 it would only take 6 hrs.
