    Sorry Ikari....but if you are going to live in this country, even in Idaho or Colorado....you have to comply with anti-discrimination laws.

    That was never in contention here.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I agree, but they've shot themselves in the feet by refusing gays. No straight man is gonna make reservations at a quaint little B & B without his wife pulling him by the nutz. Gays and chicks are their only hope.

    I think that's crazy that that is the only way a straight man will stay. I am the exception again. B&Bs are the way to go, cost about the same as a hotel and you get great beds and good breakfast usually. It's like staying at an Aunt's house.

    Truth be told, I despise staying at B & B's. I love how charming they look, but I do not want to hear someone with a sensitive stomach in the bathroom all night. I only reserve rooms with private bathrooms, but there are still the rooms nearby with "access to shared bathroom" that curdles my stomach acids.

    Yep. I didn't want to make that point cause I figured everybody was thinking it anyway. Sorry, I'm a single guy, unless I am just fried beyond belief and need to escape I'd have to be dragged to a B&B.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    In my local theater, the balcony costs more.

    Yeah, I like getting a private bathroom, too. Still, I was in the Army so nothing phases me. I used to sleep in the back of a moving APC and that's no B&B!

    I have to admit never hearing someone with a sensitive stomach all night. That would suck.

    That is true here in the States. In England going to a B&B is like going to a Super8 or Motel 6.

    We stayed at a place last summer, and I was woken up everytime the woman across the hall got up to ..... .... well, I don't think her dinner agreed with her.
