@9: I haven't read the study re:redstate gays, but the articles I've read say that it controlled for factors like income, education, and race. As for why a gay person might choose to stay in Jesusland, I can offer a few ideas based on my own experience, since I moved from Eastern Washington to Seattle for college in the '90s. I never looked back, but I can understand why someone might stay behind. I experienced culture shock, and i lost the network of extended family and lifelong friends which had provided both emotional and economic support. I had to deal with school, finding work, and making new friends, all in an environment that was unfamiliar and that felt more threatening than liberating. I also had a lot of internalized homophobia. The only gay people I had known were of the small town, "discreet" sort, so the idea of living openly didn't seem particularly liberating, just odd and rather tasteless. Ultimately, moving to a big, gay-friendly city was worth it, but it was a lot of effort and one hell of an adjustment, and I can understand why many people choose not to.

I wonder if he'll be as famous as the guy who defaced the Guernica.

@5: Are you seriously equating the harm caused by ugly and inhumane architecture with that caused by two genocidal tyrants?

Just read Danny Westneat's column about homeless kids, and as always, my heart is warmed by the compassion and decency exhibited by the commenters at seattletimes.com. They are a down-to-earth bunch, filled with charity and without an ounce of cynicism in their worldview.

Anonymous comment #11 is worth reading. The others not so much, unless you enjoy trollery.

The ergonomics of that bathroom could stand improvement.

From the linked article:

“Back by popular demand,” HP’s U.S. website reads, offering customers the chance to get $150 off a new computer loaded with Windows 7. While other manufacturers—including Dell and Lenovo—also sell a limited number of Windows 7 PCs to consumers, only HP is advocating the aging OS with such gusto.

If I were in the market for a new computer, a $150 credit would make me lean towards buying an HP.

When you order a PC through Dell's website, you can choose Windows 7.

Michael Bolton's Can I Touch You... There? The creepiness of that song is indescribable. Whenever I hear it (usually while stuck in a waiting room full of people with so-called easy listening music playing) I feel like a kid watching a movie with his parents when a sex scene comes on.
