I am from KS and have the same problems here. :-(
I did, however do a Poly presentation at school (it was for a Relationship Counseling class...so was appropriate)....almost everyone was curious (in a positive way) about it. It is hard to bring up in normal conversation though. Probably it is a good idea to start a fund for moving...lol.
That is what we are doing, as well. Once I am done with school (getting an MS in Counseling), we are moving to a more liberal area.
