Indiana could become a test ground for gay marriage in conservative states

Indiana may have a vote in 2014 on a state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, and the ban would be like Virginia's, essentially banning recognition of domestic partnerships.
 
However, the political climate even in this conservative state is getting more nuanced, and activists see a chance to pull off a big "win" in stopping the amendment.

Monica Dacvey has a story in the New York Times today, here.

I spent a summer in 1970 in Indianapolis on my first job (with RCA), and found the culture rather insular and provincial then,  Yet, the company then called it a "nice place" until it pulled out of manufacturing televisions there.
