    I lived in Louisiana for 5 years and anyone who claims that racism and all its ugly trappings is 'changed' in any meaningful way, can only make that argument because of the positive effects of laws like the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act.

    The predatory and dangerous animals in the zoo don't become less dangerous because they've been behind fences for years and years. That's why we don't pull down the fences when the lions grow up.

    Florida, IMHO, is a slightly different case because of the demographics - fewer 'real' southerners, more 'snowbirds'. But not different enough to give them a pass, for sure.

    Cheers.
