Logan Decides Discrimination is OK

Herm Olsen and Jay Monson believe it should be against the law to discriminate for housing and employment based on sexual orientation, but the other three council members don't think it's a problem worth going to any trouble to protect. The council asked the audience if any had experienced discrimination based on their orientation and a dozen people raised their hands. A dozen in that small group is significant, but was discounted by the majority of the Logan city council.
I'll sum up what I think about this by quoting Herm Olsen, "I don't think it is ever inappropriate to do the right thing."
Wow, is that profound or what? We need more Herm Olsen's in the world. Thanks Herm for reminding us all that standing up for the right is worth it--always.
