The Worst US Cities for LGBT Rights

I normally don't praise much about USA Today.  But they have an interesting article in today's edition in which they show how, although the tide is turning in favor of LGBT rights, there are still places in this country where  gays, lesbians, transgenders and others in the "spectrum" have been left high and dry--or, if you prefer, stranded on desert islands.

According to the article, of the five worst US cities for LGBT rights, the worst is in Mississippi (Southaven), the next three are in Texas (Irving, Lubbock and Mesquite) and Great Falls, Montana rounds out the list.

How long will those cities and states be stubborn, er, hold out?
