    Gay man elected to Chattanooga, Tenn. City Council


    "Victory Fund endorsee Chris Anderson made history Tuesday night when he became the first openly gay candidate to win election in Chattanooga, Tenn. Anderson beat a two-term incumbent to represent City Council District 7."

    Good for them. Nice little town. Seemed a bit of an oasis in the hills.

    When we still had mom we did some family vacations on Norris Lake, north of Knoxville and my last time up I detoured to check out Chattanooga. Excellent riverfront including a pedestrian bridge, very much used by the people there for exercise. It was actually a little crowded when I was there. I rode my bicycle over it and all around town. Also I visited the storied choochoo http://www.choochoo.com/

    Would it matter if a prominent Massachusetts town enacted policies against the LGBT community?

    Did it matter that Fort Lauderdale for years elected as mayor a homophobic, scumbag fake democrat?

    Congrats to Mr. Anderson. Sometimes people don't' judge based on sexuality and base it on actual merit.

    That would be a slippery slope.
