    I do think some citations would have been nice and that there is plenty in the McDonnell proclamation to target without the title suggesting that there's a proclamation thanking John Wilkes Booth a state hero.

    But then, I've been a little touchy lately about chapter and verse, and the lack of it (and in a few cases, reading comprehension issues) in a few things I've seen lately on the Rec list, so maybe this diarist is getting some excess attitude from me based on that.

      probably would have phrased things differently, but what I appreciate in here is the passion the diarist is showing. The Civil War is not "old news" and it continues to shape our politics today...

      ...sometimes you need a little impolitic ranting to get that point across :-)
