PICHER, Oklahoma (CNN) -- Residents in three Midwestern states spent Mother's Day sifting through the wreckage of their homes, trying to recover from powerful storms that left at least 21 people dead.
The storm system killed at least 20 people in the Midwest and then continued into the South, killing one person in Georgia, officials said.
According to my sources, no gay pride parades were planned in the area when the tornadoes hit. Furthermore, pagans and members of the ACLU are reportedly "thin on the ground" in that particular part of the country. San Francisco and the Upper West Side of NY, however, remain completely unaffected by tornadoes.
