I’m surprised and encouraged by the positive response I received when phone banking for One Iowa today. Along with those supportive of same sex marriage, I also got a number of people opposed or unsure, but who were opposed to changing the constitution and willing to call their representatives to tell them that. I also talked to several people who actually wanted to discuss the issue and know my opinion. And as a bonus, I learned that we have an awesome LGBT resource center I knew nothing about. I’m going to a potluck tomorrow and an art show on Friday there.
In other news, please remember that some of us have to pay for each and every text message we send or receive. I get so tired of people who text me four or five times in quick succession either in response to my dialing a wrong # or when they have the wrong #. If someone texts you something that doesn’t require a response, remember that sending “ok” in reply may be costing them money!
