"I feel like we are in Washington. We're talking about an issue, but we're not dealing with it. We're too small for that. Sure we have a problem. Anyone who would deny that would be a liar. But it's not a problem to the extent where it will affect the business or housing market."

--Mayor Jerry Ludwig of Jackson City, Michigan, before casting a vote to reject a proposed ordinance that would have banned discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, HIV status or gender identity and expression among other categories.
