Sure I'm petrified of the massive swollen red state of America, but here, and with Letterman, we saw and see incarnate the best of an accepting America, and in his subtle way, Carson paved the way of acceptance of others.

There is no coincedence America's best conversationalists are native to America's middle, so keep heart! There are good, thinking people there.
