I saw yellow leaves in MN though. Usually only see that on calendars.

Why does it only compare Black and White? How does this data compare to Asian-Americans or Hispanics? Also, is the author claiming this is a uniquely American observation or is this standard globally?
Valid points. The article does not gp ito that. That is one reason for my questioning/skeptcism

I thought I pretty much nailed it. Did you know that I'm part African-American? Well, just from the waist down.

Hawaii legalized same sex marriage. State # 15. That's 42.8% of the states…almost half.

It makes me sad that we're still only "almost half" in the year 2013, but at least we're getting closer! Take the small victories where you can--go Hawaii!

My nephew just arrived in Hawaii (to live there) last week. He must have tipped the scales.

Ysy!

FTR, getting a little foggier in the morning does not constitute a seasonal change :P
My cat is looking at me wondering why I am literally LOLing at this.

I'm glad to see some equality coming into America. Over 48% is a start. I have no doubt it will be 80% of the states very soon.

You're right. Dunno what I was dividing earlier. Proves I should stay away from math I guess. Still that's almost &#8531;.

*one third

#93636 Nov 14, 2013
I crunched the numbers and came up with 32.5% as the number of states allowing gay marriage. I went with the 50 (fifty) figure as the total number of states with an margin of error of zero. I hope that clears that up.

Can't remember if I posted this here or on FB. I am not an official member of this organization, but they most closely align to my positions within the Republican Party. I love knowing that there are other non-crazies in the Party :)

math is not your strong suit. Didn't edogg already jump on you once for misreporting that %?

15 out of 50 is 30%
