I was ranting about New England politics, hardly the set of all "non-Libertarians." There's a lot of hypocrisy to make fun of there on both sides of the political spectrum and I'm glad to see you create a setup that can tackle it. I mean, this is the region that gave us some of the biggest bozos in politics today: Frank, Romney, Brown, Dodd, Lieberman, etc. with Chuck Schumer and Bloomberg right next door! I hope to see many of them lampooned through Sparrow's subplot. There are primaries, after all, where the opponents might not be as upstanding a representative of your respective party as you might like.
On a more serious note, now that we know the setting is MA, do you plan to explore some of the issues with race relations there? Again, from personal experience, I know minorities are often treated as second class citizens in that part of the country. Will we be seeing any of that from Bianca's perspective or personal history? This is another facet to New England that doesn't get enough of a spotlight, such as the gentleman's agreement "Whites only" areas in RI and CT.
Also: were Sparrow and Bianca born in MA or did they move there?
