I am pleased but surprised by this award. Didn't Colorado vote down some ballot initiative a couple of years ago which would outlaw discrmination agains gays...? Or am I mis-remembering? Maybe it was Oregon. Well, regardless, I am pleased by this support.

Sorry to say it, Trina, but Colorado voted to support the initiative. It required the courts to declare it unconstitutional.
