Regarding the story “Blue dots, red state” in the Nov. 3 issue of Lagniappe, finally someone recognizes that we’re here. Yes, Virginia, there are Democrats in Alabama (at least in Baldwin County and the Eastern Shore)!

I was also pleased to see quotes from my good friend Elliott Lauderdale. More of us need to come “out as Democrats.” Like the Marines, we are “the few, the proud.”
