Well, Floyd County, of which my original hometown of Floydada is the county seat, was one of the ten most supportive counties in Texas when it came to Prop 2 voting. Why anyone would be shocked by this news is unclear. I imagine everyone's proud of the fact that they outdid those liberals over in Crosbyton. That might almost make up for the Whirlwind's 3-7 record this football season. You've got to have something to cling to in late November if you didn't make the playoffs.

Support for Prop 2 by percentages of voters, via In The Pink:
HARTLEY: 94% (810 voting yes, 49 voting no)
DALLAM: 94% (615 voting yes, 37 voting no)
MOTLEY: 95% (327 voting yes, 19 voting no)
CHILDRESS: 95% (902 voting yes, 51 voting no)
GARZA: 95% (644 voting yes, 35 voting no)
HANSFORD: 95% (902 voting yes, 47 voting no)
OCHILTREE: 95% (1,373 voting yes, 71 voting no)
PARMER: 95% (911 voting yes, 47 voting no)
FLOYD: 95% (1,134 voting yes, 55 voting no)
MARTIN: 95% (644 voting yes, 31 voting no)
