Ohio gay rights debate mirrors national mood

Crystal Thompson, 30, stands in her parents kitchen in Bowling Green, Ohio. Thompson said the Yes campaign at times was "very belligerent" and toiled to register students with no long-term stake in Bowling Green's future. Bowling Green was split down the middle by a bitter campaign over two ordinances extending anti-discrimination protection to gays, with the vote so close that it took three extra weeks to determine the measures passed. The vote reflected the situation nationwide as gay-rights supporters and their opponents trade victories and setbacks. (AP Photo/JD Pooley)
