You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn’t black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing. You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, fuck it, I don’t care what you think. I’m trying to do the right thing. I’m tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I’m trying to do the right thing, and that’s where I’m going with this.
— New York Senator Roy McDonald (R), Comes Out For Gay Marriage With Awesome Quote
Sure, people in Kansas City are nice. But I think there’s something about life in Kansas City, something about the pace, something about the ease of parking, something about the small market sports, something about the farming background, something about the opposing harshness of summer and winter, something that makes that good-hearted part of themselves come out. People in New York are nice too — many of the nicest people I know are New Yorkers — but in New York there isn’t often TIME to be nice. If you’re nice and let people in at the Holland Tunnel you will NEVER get where you’re going. In Kansas City, people have the time to be nice.
