Bill complains in Phil Bacharachs rather brief interview story (Real Time, red state, March 16, Gazette) about how so very tough it is for liberals to survive as a minority in Oklahoma City!

They wanted guns, and they wanted them now. Chuck reminded them of their
pre-riot theories, and let them protect themselves without his
Los Angeles gets it, as does its audience; Maher and Lott dont. Thus,
all the whining about why cant we all get along and other Santa
Monica/ Malibu Kumbaya mentalities get a realistic view in BLA that
only patriots can see. When the nasties come ashore, youll all cry
Where are the Marines? and demand they come to your neighborhood
