But the thing is, it’s really none of my business

The New York Times has an article about gay marriage in Iowa. It includes this piece of advice from an 84 year old Iowan, who disagrees with the gay marriage.

“To be honest, I would rather not have it in Iowa,” said Shirley Cox, who has spent most of her 84 years in this old railroad town. Ms. Cox said she had always been proud to tell people what state she was from, but now was not so sure.

“But the thing is,” she went on, “it’s really none of my business. Who am I to tell someone how to live? I live the way I want, and they should live the way they want. I’m surely not going to stomp and raise heck and campaign against it.”
