Dear Mr. Ferrell:
It's been nearly two and a half years since the Supreme Court invalidated North Carolina's archaic sodomy laws. In my opinion, that's plenty of time for your organization to implement a marketing plan to welcome sodomites, like me, back to your state. And yet I haven't seen a single brochure, pamphlet or Web site designated for this purpose.
It's worth mentioning that sodomy is a mainstream American activity. Consider that many defunct laws proscribed activities that now are downright vanilla by the standards of your average Desperate Housewife or former president.
I'm curious to know why your tourism industry has not stepped up to the plate and said, Hey Brokebacks, c'mon back now, y'hear! Or something hokey like that.
I don't think it's too much to ask.
