What my bumper meant to say was...

Seven months on the new job, and getting some constructive criticism: a co-worker said, "you might want to look at your bumper sticker - I know you and I'm not sure that's the message you want to send..."
Yikes! "Idaho is Great for Hate." I've been driving around the Sound, and in a German car at that, perpetuating the Left Coast's most cherished stereotype about all of us Idahoans. Idaho, I am so chagrined.

For my penance, bonus links go to Your Family, Friends and Neighbors, the Boise-based group that helped beat the Idaho anti-gay initiative, and to Human Rights Idaho, the keepers of the original sticker design, which is supposed to say "Idaho is TOO Great for Hate."
