  •  The Union Army marched into the Southern (3+ / 0-)

    States, and war was waged.

    If you were a Southern Citizen, it felt pretty aggressive.

    If you were in the path of Sherman's march, it felt very aggressive.

    I can almost understand why they called it that for the first few decades after the Civil War. Those folks lived through some scary times.

    The fact that anyone would consider calling it that post 1900 though? That's just willful ignorance, fantasy of times gone by, evidence of social DNA that hasn't evolved at all, and frankly, pretty good proof  that states shouldn't be in charge of education.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
