Triangle home to two of America’s 20 most tolerant cities

In case y’all missed this yesterday, the Daily Beast has an interesting list of the nation’s 20 most tolerant cities. It even includes a photo from the mall behind the state Legislative Building on the front page!

Though haters and right-wingers will no doubt deride the list, isn’t it interesting to see how closely tolerance, well-being and desirability seem to mesh? Wonder if the list will change after the marriage discrimination vote on May 8?

    its interesting what these type of articles leave out, namely tolerence of people who choose to use marijuana for medical or recreational reasons. Prohibition and the costly drug war is indeed an issue of civil rights. After all, no gay person faces arrest for their choice of lifestyle.

    “Choice of lifestyle”? Really?

    And there have been arrests — even in Raleigh in recent years — under the state’s wildly outdated and unconstitutional Crimes Against Nature law.

    Thank goodness the Wake DA knows when it’s unconstitutional to hold people.
