After countless years of watching them lord it over others it's satisfying to watch the hand wringing and whining of haters and bullies when they don't get their way.  From the demographically small state of Nevada, home to Burning Man, comes the story of how a Republican governor who may soon be US President has quietly stepped into his role as sexual futurist--using reason and knowledge to guide his actions.
