Welcome to My Neighborhood

It seems my current town of residence Largo, FL is making the news, but not in a positive way. For those who have not read the reports of transgendered City Manager Steve Stanton, I feel I must bring to light this act of discrimination:

Stanton: Abrupt Firing a Surprise - via St. Petersburg Times

Not that I would know anything about living with a life changing secret, but this seems it would be so much more difficult. I wish I could be as brave or outspoken but it seems even that right is being trampled upon:

This was such a sad and upsetting episode. People can be truly disappointing.
