I don't know if people use the "Adam and Eve" thing anymore; my experience with anti-queer protest signs mainly dates back to high school, when I marched in a few Pride Parades here in New York. I say "anti-queer" when really I mean "anti-gay-male," because that's the kind of queerness the kind of people who protest Pride Parades can't stop obsessing over.
I'm on chapter seven of Novel Prime, and our heroes are (in addition to being not terribly heroic) stuck for the moment in a small town in Ohio. It's going to be a fictional town, so I don't have to trouble myself with accuracy, and I thought of modeling it on Bryan, Ohio, population 8,545. Bryan came to my attention because it's on Amtrak's Lake Shore Limited line; this is the town's Amtrak station, and not, as you might initially imagine, a cardboard diorama. I'd like to visit, just to walk around for a few hours, but Ohio is kind of far away! Is there a rough equivalent of a town like Bryan any closer to New York?
