Isolated incidents like this don't say much in a metro of 6 million people. At least Arlington has gay clubs.

I agree. Even the most liberal places still have backwards people and conservative politicians.

Comparing the conservative nature of Tyler to DFW makes no sense.

Does Arlington have liquer stores? No, you still have to go outside the city. Its dry just like Tyler. You can drink beer while you shop for groceries, you can purchase wine & drink it on the patio right across the street from the mall off of South Tyler's busiest intersection. Smith County in Winona & Troup went totally wet & if all goes well come this November the City of Tyler will go totally wet.

The only thing semi-liberal about North Texas is Dallas County & even that is a stretch in a city that still wants to pass a law banning sagging pants for Black folk like its 1992. Now that is pathetic & it speaks volumes about the social conservatism that still exists in Dallas, a city of 1.2 million people.

No one said anything about DFW being the most easy-going place on the planet, but you'd still be stretching it to claim that the area in general is close to being as conservative as a town like Tyler. Fashion ordinances and alcohol laws only tell one part of the story.

Name one. There are none in the Yellow Pages and people I've known who lived there didn't know of any.
