“I’m thinking of taking my family and getting out of this country soon… It’s cold and it’s mean-spirited and I don’t like it here any more.” -Alan Moore (V Is For Vendetta)

My grandmother is a trip. Today we had a strange conversation about gay marriages. Surprisingly, my mother backed me up on this when I said, “People need to stay out of other people’s business. That especially includes the government.” I reminded her how she told me years ago that if I ever had a black girlfriend, I wouldn’t be her grandson any more. “Really? I said that?” Yeah. “Well, that sounds like something I would say, because that’s pretty much how I feel about it now.”

Later: “I suppose if it came down to that, I wouldn’t really be able to go through with it.”
