    Great post, Bill. There are a lot of great southern heritages, many of which have nothing to do with that flag, or which existed in direct opposition to it. And there are a lot of things still done...

    Do you seriously think Native Americans have any reason to prefer the Confederate flag over the American one? :)

    The moderators will hear no objection from me if they take this down for perhaps touching on more recent issues, but while I can I'd like to put in a word for Old Glory.
