Vicco, a small Kentucky town in the heart of Appalachia, was featured during The Colbert Report’s segment, “People Who Are Destroying America” last night. Amazingly, Johnny Cummings, who is the mayor and also an openly gay man, was recently able to pass an LGBT fairness ordinance in Vicco.
In the following clip, you’ll see a Vicco resident and local cop explain that Mayor Cummings is his best friend and has supported him through “all four” of his marriages after which he adds this incredibly touching sentiment,
“And I love him like a brother. And I’ll take care of him just like that, just like a brother.”
We could all learn a thing or two from the fine people of Vicco, KY. Wisdom sometimes comes from the unlikeliest of sources, but it’s wisdom just the same.
