City Manage Steve Stanton is being fired for being transgendered (The link is one of many, many stories out right now. For much, much more on this disturbing story visit Pam). The special meeting where the vote to fire happened attracted about 500 people this past Tuesday, February 2007. This is what happened to a woman in the lobby of city hall handing out fliers reading "Don't Discriminate":
