First of all, if you want anything in the world but Christmas music, do this.
Go to http://www.pandora.com. Plug in the name of any song or artist you like. They'll find you similar music! I've already discovered a new band I love, an underground hip-hop outfit called Giant Panda (I KNOW! How AWESOME!), through it.
Then meditate on this comment at one of my gay marriage debate lists.
Someone had posted this anti-gay-marriage article by one David Orland. It begins:
If you've ever tried to discuss gay unions with someone who supports them, you know how difficult this can be.
Replied a supporter:
Indeed. It's funny, isn't it, how tenacious people can be in response to your attempts to oppress them.
Almost a year, and I've been enjoying my marriage too much to fight for it sometimes. But I vow to be as tenacious as possible.
