9. I'll try not to, but while on DU I am decidedly "left of center"
among my relatives I am practically a right wing apostate.

Grandma is a registered socialist, great-grandpa was a communist and my mother will vote democratic in close elections as a nod to political realism, but votes Green or socialist in all other circumstances. My parents spend a lot of time wondering where they went wrong with me. But they love and accept me anyway.

(For the record, on the Pew Research Center's political attitudes survey, I clocked in as slightly left of Gandhi, so I'm not all that "centrist", but I guess it's all compared to the company you keep.)

Have a wonderful holiday everyone!
