This morning I saw a news article entitled Divided States of America: Obama win sparks secession mania and eagerly clicked on it. What are those crazy Yanks up to now? There’s always something wacky going on down there, and I nearly always enjoy reading about it. This particular instance has several right-wing states organizing and signing on-line petitions declaring their desire to get out from under the US flag. It’s no surprise that the majority of the states involved were on the Confederate side of the ol’ Civil War (they’ve never really let that old chestnut die, as the slogan “The South Shall Rise Again” would suggest).
Gregg Beam (sarcastic): Yeah, you’re right. We should just deal with nice people.
