    is infested with religious whackos is understating the situation by by several magnitudes.  Colo. Sprgs. is a pretty city in a beautiful setting but socially and politically it's the sweaty, stinking armpit of stupid.
    I've lived in the state all my life half way between the Peoples Republic of Boulder and the epicenter of religious assholyness in Colo. Sprgs.
    The town would be better placed in Mississippi or Louisiana. As it is, it's right in the middle of 4 military establishments; Camp Carson Army base, Patterson Air Base, the Air Force Academy and NORAD and Focus on the Family, and others of their ilk, are all over them like stink on shit.

Just like the rest of the state the demographics of the Springs is changing pretty rapidly.

      hoards of idiot fundies crawling all over young lieutenants.  Montgomery is a blue county because of Dayton's sizable Union and non-white population but everything outside the city limits is a bunch of transplanted hillbillies.
