    Awesome ad campaign!
    And yet another organization for the conservatives to boycott.
    Have at it, haters.

    Does this mean fewer religious fundies on the train?
    I'm all for it.
    Let them hitchhike or stay home and stew in their own bile.

    They will soon be driving horses and buggies because nearly every auto manufacturer gets high marks from the HRC.

    This makes me want to ride Amtrak. Never have been on a train, except a locomotive tourist attraction.

    I had to look at that three times before i figured out why conservatives might not like them... I was honestly trying to figure out how race was factoring into it in some way.

    Aww the gay couple's son is so cute! Also the lesbian couple could totally just pass for a mom and her sister with the little girl.

    And I really only have one thing to say to Amtrak...

    I love Amtrak. The ride is the same amount of time as driving to my brother's. The seats are roomy and comfy. You can walk around and talk to people. They've a snack car to sit and read or chat with travelers or work on the puter and I love having a meal in the dining car. It's so orient express: a cloth covered table, seriously excellent wait staff and watching the world go by as I enjoy their tasty gardenburger, chips and an iced cold beer.

    Learning now that they are gay-friendly? Excellent! I totally recommend train travel. I just discovered Amtrak recently. My only other experience with trains was subways and such. And I've always loved subways and such. But trains are even better.

    And I don't have any idea what might make me like trains so much...
