I look out at the world around me and see burning crosses and pitchforks. I live in a part of the world where I am not acceptable because I think too much. No other reason. I just think, period, and that makes me a freak.

The people who would take me up and destroy me and what I stand for I look at, not with contempt, but sorrow. At one time, long ago, there was a mind behind those blank stares. Now all I see are cavemen.

I apologize. I shouldn't disparage cavemen by comparing them to this idiot mob.

    For those of you who may not understand, Oklahoma is the most conservative state in the U.S., and I'm very much a liberal-minded person. Though I don't have anything against conservative people or conservatism in general, I find most of the people who live around me that are conservative simply are part of a mob and don't like to think for themselves.

    There's a sinister Drabble waiting here beyond the opinion. Worth revisiting.

    Or so the FOX would have us believe, Samantha. :) Thanks to you both for your comments!
